This live presentation will air on:

Tuesday - September 20th - 1pm Pacific time

This workshop will be taught in the 2016 Not Back to School Summit - REGISTER HERE for live access!

In the span of twenty tumultuous years, George Washington was the central figure of a nation's beginnings, as the U.S.A.'s Founders declared the existence of a new nation; fought a war against the world’s mightiest empire, and broke it apart; created thirteen state governments and a confederation linking them together; wrote a new constitution; amended it with a Bill of Rights; rewrote the state constitutions to align with the new federal system; and, amid massive uncertainties, set the new system to working. What was it about Washington that made him essential in this process? How did his actions, and his personal character, affect the situations and the people around him? Storyteller Jim Weiss brings to life true stories of the man that even Britain’s King George III called “the greatest man in the world.”
