Pub. Date:
During the 1780s and 1790s, George Washington used his Mount Vernon estate to preserve the memory of events that had created a new nation and promote his vision of what that nation might become. In the decades following his death, the estate attracted thousands of visitors and was transformed into a national shrine. This volume presents over 100 accounts written by people who visited the estate between 1784-1865, accompanied by explanatory headnotes and brief annotations.
