Historian Nathaniel Philbrick Takes a Road Trip With George Washington

Minnesota Arts, Culture and History | Arts | Northern Community Radio – KAXE & KBXE, Minnesota
In 2018 historian and writer Nathaniel Philbrick, his wife Melissa, and their dog Dora took off on a road trip to trace George Washington’s route across the country after his 1789 inauguration. Nathaniel is the author of the American Revolution trilogy: which includes the books Bunker Hill, Valiant Ambition, and In the Hurricane’s Eye. His new book is Travels With George. It’s part travel narrative, part historical analysis and quite timely. Washington himself was leading a highly divisive nation at the time of his tours and Nathaniel wanted to see how our first president was able to bring the country together.
