George Washington, The Man Who Would't Be King (The American Experience) #PBSVHS0001
George Washington, The Man Who Would't Be King (The American Experience)
PBS Home Video

The documentary, George Washington: The Man Who Wouldn't Be King, is the story of a man who grew into greatness by accepting the challange of leading a fractious "rag-tag" army in a epic struggle against the British Government.  George Washington was a man of modest education and lacked a formal military education but despite this learned from his mistakes and overcame initial battlefield losses to lead the Revolutionary forces to their final victory over the British at Yorktown.  Along the way he married a wealthy widow and became a plantation owner at Mount Vernon on the Potomac River.  This documentary through the use of impressionistic photography and rare and revealing paintings, etchings and prints from museums and private collections goes beyond the standard textbook portrait to uncover the real George Washington.  Full screen in color.  Released in 2005.  Runtime 60 minutes.
