Recount the struggle and triumph of America’s first president

Westfield, New Jersey – WEBWIRE

“Washington in New York.” The nation’s capital is in New York City, George Washington is president, and the competing policies of Alexander Hamilton and James Madison are threatening to divide the infant republic before it has a chance to prove itself. Washington becomes ill and is near death, and the government comes to a standstill. The plot of a novel? No. It happened as recounted in this book.

During his presidency, George Washington encountered many challenges. However, the legacy he left as the nation’s first president reveals the kind of leader that he was. This is  the story of Richard Nisley’s book, “Washington in New York: George Washington and the First Congress of the United States.”

Nisley focuses on Washington’s first term, particularly when New York was the capital of the United States (April 1789–July 1790). Although this only took place in the space of a few years, it had a huge impact on the country. Everything the United States would become and do: explore the outer reaches of space, welcome millions of immigrants, lead the effort to defeat fascism and communism, produce countless technological advances, would not have been possible without the man from Mount Vernon, Virginia. George Washington made it all possible, beginning with victory over the British, the writing of the U.S. Constitution, the astonishing output of the First Congress, and Hamilton’s economic vision for America. As a leader of men, Washington was a giant. This book shows you why.

“Washington in New York” was originally drafted as a novel; however, when this didn’t work out as intended, Nisley rewrote the story as narrative nonfiction. Learn more about America’s rich history by grabbing your own copy of this book, available in online bookstores.
