Well done!
13 November 2006 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

As a history buff, I've visited many historical sites and battlefields and watched many short documentary museum films. This film was without qualification, the best I've seen yet.

I saw this film during my recent visit to Mt. Vernon. Beginning the visit with such a great film sets the perfect tone for the rest of the tour. Very high production values, excellent writing, and beautiful acting all come together to create a wonderful introduction to the life of George Washington.

The film highlights the events surrounding Washington's decision to cross the Delaware River and attack the Hessian force on Christmas. Demonstrating the type of man Washington was off the battlefield and away from the political arena, the film also shows how Washington met Martha Custis.

Overall, the film gives the viewer new perspective into the type of man Washington was, what his motivations were and how he came to be unanimously chosen as the first president of the United States.
