957 George Washington Volume Seven: First in Peace, by John Alexander and Mary Wells Ashworth (read 30 Jun 1968) This final volume was not done by Freeman. But the seven volumes are neatly summarized by this quotation from this volume: "How punctuations of sound and of silence had marked George Washington's life! At 16 he had touched the frontier and had learned by listening as well as by looking, to know the wilderness. Soon he learned . . .the staccato of rain . .. the sentry's alarm . . .; the whistle of bullets . . . the beat of the drum . . . the incessant shrieks of savages . . . the clattering of round shot . . . the exultant roar of American mortars . .. Salute and salutation, huzzas and hurrahs, he had heard and acknowledged with complete composure. But none of those in the crowd that followed along a Philadelphia Street in March,1797, saw that his eyes were wet with tears as he silently bowed to their silent veneration." ( )
