POWER LINE remembers George Washington's birthday, which is easy to forget these days. (It's not even a holiday at my university). Still, there's some revival of interest in Washington, spurred by Richard Brookhiser's biography Founding Father, which I thought was excellent. I also recommend David Hackett Fischer's recent book, Washington's Crossing, which uses the famous painting as a way of exploring society's changing attitudes.
