These essays from leading scholars analyze Washington’s relationships with and influence on the lives, careers, and characters of the members of a diverse fraternity of younger men. Daniel Morgan, Anthony Wayne, Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, Henry Knox, Nathanael Greene, Gouverneur Morris, Alexander Hamilton, and the Marquis de Lafayette were not all his closest associates, but are important figures in that their interactions with Washington provide glimpses into various aspects of his capabilities for management, motivation, control, and the cultivation of talent.
