Students examine letters and public papers to appraise Washington's character, his military and political leadership, his contributions to the forming of a new government under the Constitution, and the evolution of his perceptions on the institution of slavery.
Six lessons and 35 reproducible handouts introduce a variety of documents including the Rules of Civility and Decent Behavior, the Newburgh Address, excerpts from Washington’s diary, the Farewell Address, and his last will and testament. Through an examination of these documents students are able to distinguish Washington as a unique individual who played a pivotal role in the development of the American Republic rather than as an abstract figure, more legendary than real.
