    George Washington is revered as the first President of the United States, but little attention is paid to his role in creating the presidency as we know it. Drawing on rare documents and letters, this ground-breaking history shows how he faced down both foreign invasion and angry mobs who threatened to drag him to the gallows, stamping his authority on a largely ceremonial office and transforming it into one of the most powerful executive positions on earth.
