Edited by Fred Anderson.  ISBN 0-7425-3372-7.  Copyright 2004.  Oversized hardcover with 175 pages including 41 illustrations and index.   

Late in 1787, George Washington wrote a rare autobiographical account of his service in the French and Indian War.  He related his experiences in a compelling 11 page narrative that includes a vivid account of Braddock’s defeat in 1755 and a description of a friendly fire incident in 1758 that “involved the life of GW in as much jeopardy as it had ever been before or since.”  This very personal document offers a glimpse of Washington in a self-reflective mood, a side of the man seldom seen in his other writings.

The book contains a facsimile reproduction of Washington’s “Remarks” accompanied by an annotated transcript along with original essays that place the work in the context of the French and Indian War and Washington’s life.
