The life of George Washington
7 May 2010 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

This portrayal of Washington paints him as being ambitious to the point of extreme arrogance . The story goes out of its way to attribute horrible motives to Washington while presenting noteworthy or noble deeds as accomplishments of others or written off merely as luck. There is no historical context comparing the man with the times. There are very few of Washington's own words included, and when they are his intent is either distorted or the viewer is encouraged not to believe the validity. I ask how can a biography of Washington hope to be taken seriously when the crossing the Delaware is relegated to a few sentences?
