George Washington’s Presidency (1789-1797) set the gold standard for what it means to be the President of the United States of America. His impact on our country, and the world, is so immense that it has been the subject of thousands of books, movies and Doctoral dissertations. Washington’s selflessness, sound judgment, moderation and “steady hand at the wheel” allowed our fragile Republic to rise to greatness in the decades that followed- and become a beacon of liberty for people around the globe. Abigail Adams summed it up when she wrote: “Mark his majestic fabric, he’s a temple sacred by birth, and built by hands divine. He is polite with dignity, affable without familiarity, distant without haughtiness, grave without austerity, modest, wise and good.” His biography is well known but still some myths remain to this day.
Carl is a former educator and senior business executive who has dedicated his retirement toward helping children and adults discover George Washington. His portrayal goes much deeper than simply donning a uniform, Carl is a serious scholar and lively speaker who delights audiences with little-known, instructive and entertaining Washington facts that parallel the challenges and situations we face today in our homes, classrooms and workplaces. Carl’s biography and testimonials speak to his world renowned status as one of the best “living biographers” of General George Washington.
