Washington

George Washington makes his first appearance in Rutherfurd's New York in 1776, in the 'War' chapter, where he tries to rally his troops beside what would later be the site of the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue. The story follows him during his days at Valley Forge and though to his presidency, which began in New York.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The Guillotine lives on! Within Paris’ 11th district, at the corner of the streets of La Croix-Faubin and Roquette, there are five concrete plates that pop out of the asphalt around them. Those five spots are what is left from the French guillotine. These marks of the former French judicial system have been kept and are still visible today.
