A focused and concise biography, Realistic Visionary re-examines the key moments and themes of George Washington's life to present a more vivid portrait of the man himself, combining his attributes as a general, a politician, as well as a citizen. Drawing on unparalleled access to Washington's own papers, letters, and diaries, Professor Peter Henriques profiles the events that shaped Washington's life and career. In addition, he shows how several leading historical figures, including Washington's wife, Martha, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, and more impacted Washington's direction in life.

Tracking America's first president through his final days, Realistic Visionary tells the story of a man dedicated to public service who was able to do so while satisfying his own incredible sense of personal ambition.
