Everybody knows George Washington as our foremost Founding Father, the man who led the forces that liberated the Colonies and became our first President. But how many today give him due credit for his unprecedented successes with creative accounting and financial wizardry?
In George Washington’s Expense Account, coauthor Marvin Kitman shows how Washington brilliantly turned his noble gesture of refusing payment for his service as Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army into an opportunity to indulge his insatiable lust for fine food and drink, extravagant clothing, and lavish accommodations. In a close analysis of the actual documents that financed our Revolution, Kitman uncovers more scandals than you can shake a Nixon cabinet member atand serves each up with verve and wit.
