The life of George Washington by Jared Sparks( Book )

147 editions published between 1837 and 2015 in English and German and held by 1,457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biography of George Washington (1732-1799), first President of the United States. Vol. 2 contains chapters 21-40, covering the period between the summer of 1776 (and the subsequent winter at Valley Forge) to the death of George Washington after his presidency. Thus this volume covers most of his command of the Revolutionary Army, his chairmanship of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, and his two terms as President. The chapters chiefly deal with his military and political life, rather than his personal life

Franklin on Franklin by Benjamin Franklin( )

22 editions published between 1840 and 1880 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography ends in 1758, some thirty years before he died. Those three decades included some of the statesman's greatest triumphs, yet instead of including them in his memoir, Franklin spent the years continually revising his original text." "Franklin on Franklin stands as the first autobiographical account of a great American life. By returning to a newly recovered early draft of the Autobiography, author Paul M. Zall strips away later layers of moralizing and revision to reveal the story as Franklin first wrote it: how a poor boy from Boston used hard work and his wits to become America's first world-class citizen. To cover Franklin's career as a diplomat and as the only signatory of all threes key documnents of the American Revolution, Zall interweaves autobiographical comments from Franklin's personal letters and private journals."--Jacket
