I've been reading the book "1776," and while I'm not done, it has an amazing portrayal of General Washington as a sort of folk hero. He was huge in stature and had an overwhelming presence. He was the guy standing out among the gunfire and cannon fire without fear with the utmost confidence he was in no danger. An "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" kind of guy.

I have to heartily recommend this book. It's probably one of the best I've read, even as a military history buff. ...and as a proud American.

I'm going to write down this "Washington: The Indispensable Man" book and I'll send you an e-mail if I decide to read it. Thanks for the recommendation.

Thanks for your recommendation as well, Ryan! I'm always on the lookout for new history books to add to my collection...especially that period in time, where there never seems to be a shortage of interesting and inspiring stories.

Is it some sort of time paradox that led to the story-related question framed on Washington's wall? And isn't it kinda dumb to keep a knife on the table you're arm-wrestling on? Some strange circumstances concerning these two key figures..have they been ...replaced? DUN DUN DUNNN...oh, wait, that's Marvel..
