Summary
He was bumbling, yet ambitious. He volunteered to serve his country, but insisted on being reimbursed for expenses. He owned five sets of dentures--even a set from pigs' teeth--but not one of them wooden. He was the most famous general of the Revolution, but a dismal tactician on the battelfield. His overall record was 3 wins, and 9 losses--but his retreat was brilliant. George Washington has been sculpted, painted, emulated and deified for more than 200 years, but few Americans have an idea who he was. This film is for all of us who were raised on myth and are curious about the truth. It explores our First President's relationship with his wife and other women (he was known to be extremely fond of their company); with his troops and the revolutionary cause; with his slaves and his fellow founding fathers. This film gives an unconventional look at the man who insisted that America be a democracy
