This fascinating work, part revisionist biography of George Washington and part social history, grounds Washington in an America still largely belonging to indigenous peoples. Calloway projects a jaded view of our founding father as a wicked, deceitful, malevolent and even murderous brigand. Calloway’s book is a welcome reevaluation of Washington as well as an excellent exhumation of the role of indigenous Americans in the early republic.
