Synopsis

American Experience: George Washington - The Man Who Wouldn't Be King
When George Washington, general and commander in chief of the Continental Army, led his troops to victory, absolute power was within his grasp. Washington could have used his power to establish a military dictatorship or become king, a notion not without support from his own army. Remarkably, he instead relinquished such opportunities for what he believed was the greater good of the country and to foster a union of the states under a strong central government. American Experience: George Washington -- The Man Who Wouldn't Be King explores Washington's growth as a fighter for the colonies, his relationship with his troops, his involvement in the Revolutionary War, and his interaction with America's other founding fathers including John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, and Thomas Jefferson. An outstanding leader and "Father of His Country," American Experience: George Washington -- The Man Who Wouldn't Be King takes an unconventional look at a man who symbolizes the American Revolution and a commitment to creating a country of democracy. ~ Brooke Hodess, Rovi
