Washington’s Presidency Presented

There are many books available on Washington‘s life, but if you’re looking for one specifically on his presidency, this is your book. It is well written and clarifies some matters that are left ambiguous in others’ writings on Washington. And of course, it’s narrated by Mr. Runger. Enjoy!
