It is truly a classic
10 January 2004 | by (texas) – See all my reviews

My husband and I saw this on cable years ago and fell in love with the history and life of George Washington. Barry Bostwick does a superb job as the main character and Patty Duke fits the role as his short wife, Martha. When we found it on VHS, we bought it and over time, our children have all watched it. When we found ourselves going to DC for vacation, we all watched it again to get a feel for the man and his life before visiting Mt. Vernon. Our children said the miniseries helped them understand what they saw and heard at Washington's home. Every history lover should have a copy of this classic miniseries.
