Description: George Washington's Mount Vernon brings together -- for the first time -- the details of Washington's 45-year endeavor to build and perfect Mount Vernon. In doing so, it introduces us to a Washington few of his contemporaries knew, and one little noticed by historians since.

Here we meet the planner/patriot who also genuinely loved building, a man intensely human in his desire to impress on his physical surroundings the stamp of his character and personal beliefs. As chief architect and planner of the countless changes made at Mount Vernon over the years, Washington began by imitating accepted models of fashionable taste, but as time passed he increasingly followed his own ideas. Hence, architecturally, as the authors show, Mount Vernon blends the orthodox and the innovative in surprising ways, just as the new American nation would. Equally interesting is the light the book sheds on the process of building at Mount Vernon, and on the people -- slave and free -- who did the work. Washington was a demanding master, and in their determination to preserve their own independence his workers often clashed with him. Yet, as the Dalzells argue, that experience played a vital role in shaping his hopes for the future of American society -- hope that embraced in full measure the promise of the revolution in which he had led his fellow citizens.
