Summary

iA Great and Good Mani presents a lively collection of contemporary letters, poems, addresses and newspaper reports that demonstrate the remarkable esteem in which Washington was held. Washington would become, after his death, a true symbol of the American republic. This selection of materials, many reprinted for the first time since the eighteenth century, shows that in his life Washington had already become the Father of his country and was acclaimed for his sense of honor, his heroism, and his wisdom. The editors of iA Great and Good Mani have set the context for their carefully selected documents with insightful introductions; and their thorough index greatly enhances the accessibility of the material presented.
