The 18th Century US Presidents: America's 18th Century Presidents - George Washington and John Adams Publisher's Summary

In this one-hour history book, discover the US Presidents from the 18th century. It all started with Georges Washington, the first American President and John Adams, the second US President. Discover how these Founding Fathers of the U.S.A. became presidents, the main events of their presidency, and their impact on America and World’s history! 

George Washington. He was a general, a revolutionary, a president and a freethinker. Americans learn many stories about him when they are young — but the funny thing is, much of what has been passed down isn’t actually true! Take, for example, the longstanding myth that Washington had wooden teeth. Nope, because while good old George did have dental problems, his dentures were made of bone, not wood. Another oft-told myth is the story of a young Washington chopping down a cherry tree and when confronted by his father, stating, “I cannot tell a lie!” But this never really occurred. So, just what do we know about George Washington for sure? 

John Adams had begun his career as a lawyer and part-time social activist who championed causes such as the right to counsel and the presumption of innocence, both of which would become hallmarks of the U.S. legal system. How did this founding father sneak in to become the US second president? 

Find out in this short book. After listening to it, you will know everything you need to know about the 18th century American Presidents.
