George Washington is such a mystery. The President presiding over the era I write about, FDR, was an enigma too, but…the inside of Washington’s head will never be revealed by any writer.

OK to keep trying!

Leslie – I’m so glad that you enjoy this feature. It’s a book exercise for me, because then I get excited about what’s coming out!

Shelley – I agree with you about Washington. There isn’t really enough of a record for us to truly know him. I can’t say whether it’s better for us now that we have so much information about our current presidents.
