He was the Father of the Nation, the First President and the most revered figure of 19th century American history. Yet he also was a major slaveholder and a fierce and aggressive combatant in the Indian wars of the Colonial Era. Join J. B. Andersen for a fresh look at George Washington, perhaps the foundational figure of our American story.

Andersen is a historian and the creator of the popular History of the Presidents series.

This series is presented in partnership with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute of the University of Minnesota and funded with money from the Friends of the Ramsey County Libraries.
