George Washington is best known as a soldier and a statesman. But beyond the public image of the Father of the Country was successful entrepreneur who was among the wealthiest men in North America.
GEORGE WASHINGTON'S WORKSHOP goes beyond the stoic façade to explore the private enterprise of the first president. From ambitious and untested plans to increase the production of the farms at Mount Vernon to an examination of the records which show he made $7,500 from his distillery operations, this fascinating program adds to our understanding of arguably the most important figure in our nation's history.
SAVE OUR HISTORY draws from Washington's diaries and correspondence, historically accurate re-enactments and the ongoing work at Mount Vernon to tell this fascinating story.
