Join Robert Watson for a discussion on his book George Washington's Final Battle: The Epic Struggle to Build a Capital City and a Nation. George Washington is remembered for leading the Continental Army to victory, presiding over the Constitution, and forging a new nation, but few know the story of his involvement in the establishment of a capital city and how it nearly tore the United States apart. In George Washington’s Final Battle, Watson brings this tale to life, telling how the country’s first president tirelessly advocated for a capital on the shores of the Potomac. The book won the 2022 silver medal in history at the Independent Publishers Book Awards—the world’s largest book awards and competition.
