The general in the garden : George Washington's landscape at Mount Vernon by Adam T Erby( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The General in the Garden provides an engaging, informative, and richly illustrated introduction to George Washington's landscape at Mount Vernon - arguably the best-documented, best-preserved complex of gardens and grounds to survive from eighteenth-century America. The book's three essays, by Adam T. Erby, J. Dean Norton, and Esther C. White, chronicle Washington's transformation of the estate in the years between the American Revolution and the Constitutional Convention of 1787, the stewardship of its gardens by the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association since 1860, and the archaeology that led to the recent restoration of Washington's showplace upper garden. Mount Vernon assistant curator Adam Erby examines Washington's critical role in developing Mount Vernon's landscape, arguing that the general drew on British design sources and gardening manuals but adapted them to his own circumstances, creating a truly American garden. J. Dean Norton, Mount Vernon's director of horticulture, traces the evolution of the estate's landscape and recreated gardens across the two centuries since Washington's death. And Esther White, Mount Vernon's director of historic preservation and research, shows how groundbreaking archaeological methods facilitated the discovery of Washington-era garden beds and borders of flowers, shrubs, and vegetables in his upper garden - a remarkable find that yielded one of the most significant eighteenth-century garden recreations of our time. Also included is a lavishly illustrated guide to Mount Vernon's landscape features, introducing Washington's beloved estate to a modern audience. This book will appeal to many readers - from students of American history and culture to gardening enthusiasts to Mount Vernon visitors curious to know more about the estate to which George Washington devoted intense and sophisticated care.

The presidency of George Washington by Jack D Warren( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first specialized study of thhe Washington presidency published in a generation, historian Jack D. Warren, Jr., outlines the first president's practical accomplishments; the establishment of the executive as an energetic and effective branch of government, the resolution of the new nation's financial crisis, the opening of the trans-Appalachian West, the creation of Washington, D.C., and the preservation of peace with the warring powers of Europe. In a time of intense partisanship, Warren explains that Washington worked constantly to strengthen the Union, gave his office a character that transcends politics, and set a standard of conduct for national leaders that has endured for more than two centuries. Washington shaped the powers of the presidency, former President George Bush says in his Foreword, "yet never wavered from his promise to remain a servant of the people."--Back cover
