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?
October, derived from the Latin Octo, which means eight, was actually the eighth month of the year in the original Roman calendar of ten months. It wasn’t until the Julian calendar was introduced by Julius Caesar in the first century BC that January and February were added. The Julian calendar remained the predominant calendar in Europe through the sixteenth century, until it was amended to the Gregorian calendar we still use today.
