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?
Keeping Curry on Hand. Queen Victoria loathed spicy food, but as Empress of India, she insisted that curry be available at all times in the event that a “visiting oriental” ever showed up unannounced at the palace doors. The food itself, of course, was probably not something to be desired by any visitor. It consisted of previously cooked food doused in curry powder.
