George Washington Sleeps Here
GEORGE WASHINGTON SLEEPS HERE is an exploration of the mythologized imagery of George Washington. For all the history written about him, the stories told about him, all the battles fought on certain dates, and all the undisputed facts of his existence, he remains in a sense a mysterious figure. Over the years, people have recreated Washington in many different forms to satisfy their own purposes and desires. Our collective memory of him, real and imagined, is forever entwined with our lives as Americans.
