Excerpt from Mountain Herald, Vol. 25: February-March, 1921 Bancroft has said, "Without him our country could never have achieved her independence, and formed her union." Edward Everett Hale said He was the greatest of good men and the best of great men Cincinnatus Heine Miller said, "The first, the best, the Cincinnatus of the West." John W. Daniel said, "He was the achiever and preserver of liberty." "I want to analyze his greatness, so that in the contemplation of his greatness we may to-day realize our ambitions. "Washington more than other men was prepared for every opportunity that came to him. In school he devoted himself to mathematics and was prepared for the surveying offered him by Lord Fairfax. He saw the French forts, knew the methods of the Indians, and was prepared to bear the message of the Governor of Virginia to the French. As a result of his training in the French and Indian War Washington was the best prepared man in all the English Colonies to lead the revolutionary forces. "A new Washington was born from every opportunity as it came. See him at Valley Forge, in conversation with his God in the midst of despair, receive a new birth of hope by virtue of which you and I enjoy our liberties. See him at Mt. Vernon when dangers of war are over; a new Washington is born that will not be content until he has formed a union. "Washington was a man of great and sublime faith in himself. He had a great faith and belief in the work he had to do. He treated what you and I would call mediocre affairs with all seriousness. He had faith in God. You have got to have that faith that comes only from a sublime faith in God. "No man ever got a greater victory over his own life than Washington in his self-mastery of his passions. Hence he was able to command men. He was a man of great consecration. Consecration is one of the elements of success. Whatever we undertake to do, let us put ourselves into it. There is no permanent success when that life does not contribute to the welfare of others. "Washington was a man of action. He did not stop with the mere thinking of things; he did things. He had great convictions of duty and was not content until they had expressed themselves in action." About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
