Editorial Reviews

Review

In March 1785 Washington referred to his work at Mount Vernon as his singular 'amusement,' which is what Donald Jackson and Dorothy Twohig continue to provide readers of Washington's diaries. These volumes stand in welcome contrast to the growing colorlessness that has become the hallmark of too many documentary editions.

(American Historical Review)

The editors have turned the diaries and almanac notes... into sources that when placed in their context give us real insight into this most inscrutable of the Founding Fathers.

(Virginia Quarterly Review)

An invaluable guide for historians and, surprisingly, the casual reader interested in Washington, his observations on several trips and... comments on some of the military and political affairs of the day.... Large sections of the diary... give the general reader a fascinating insight to the man.

(Will Molineux in Newport News Daily Press)
