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?
Only one man was allowed to live in the royal palace of China, known as the Forbidden City: the emperor. All the other inhabitants were either women - wives, concubines or servants - or the famous palace eunuchs. Nearly all eunuchs were castrated when they were still only boys. But there were just a few who chose to be castrated after they became men, and even had children of their own. They did it for the money.
