This fully narrated DVD tours Mount Vernon, the home of America’s most famous hero. Washington’s personality and interests are evident everywhere. Textbooks describe the General and the President, but Mount Vernon, as seen in this DVD program, tells us about the man.
Washington’s home is shown in its entirety, including the third floor, which is not usually viewed by the public. Rooms and furnishings are described in relation to George and Martha’s daily lives. The flower gardens, overseer’s quarters and other outbuildings – essential parts of this large and busy plantation – are all included.
Running time: 76 minutes. DVD extras: Interactive menus and chapter search. Bonus features: New Theaters and Galleries Tour, Life of George Washington and Building a Better Barn.
