Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns


George Washington

Today is George Wahington's birthday!  Here is his Letter to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport, to remind us the things for which we stand: civil and religious liberty.  Allow me to bring this good book on Washington to your attention, A Sacred Union of Citizens.

I had a great conversation with a friend of mine who owns a bookshop in town about the republican greatness and significance of Washington, the Indispensable Man. Matt Spalding's book is very good indeed. It's hard not to underline every word in the book. Richard Brookhiser's volume is a rather good Plutarchian addition to Matt's book. Happy birthday and a toast to our greatest hero.
