Author David O. Stewart discusses his newest book, "George Washington: The Political Rise of America’s Founding Father".

David O. Stewart's newest book, George Washington: The Political Rise of America’s Founding Father, is an account of how George Washington became the single most dominant force in the creation of the United States of America. Washington's rise constitutes one of the greatest self-reinventions in history. In his mid-twenties, this third son of a modest Virginia planter had ruined his own military career thanks to an outrageous ego. But by his mid-forties, that headstrong, unwise young man had evolved into an unassailable leader chosen as the commander in chief of the fledgling Continental Army. By his mid-fifties, he was unanimously elected the nation's first president. How did Washington emerge from the political wilderness to become the central founder of the United States of America?  Mr. Stewart will discuss his research and writing, and answer audience questions. 

After many years as a trial and appellate lawyer, David O. Stewart became a bestselling writer of history and historical fiction.  His histories have explored the writing of the Constitution, the gifts of James Madison, the outrageous western expedition and treason trial of the mysterious Aaron Burr, and the impeachment trial of President Andrew Johnson.  His histories have won the Washington Writing Award for best book of the year, the History Prize of the Society of the Cincinnati, and the William H. Prescott Award of the National Society of Colonial Dames of America. Find David and more of his work online at https://davidostewart.com/
