GEORGE WASHING: MY DEAR GRANDPAPA- The fascinating story of a young woman, Nelly Custis, and her step-grandfather, George Washington. Nelly reflects on her fortuitous beginnings as a young girl living in the presidential mansions. Writing letters to her childhood friend, she describes witnessing life being breathed into a new nation. George Washington is a courageous colonel from the French & Indian War, he is the commander of the Continental Army that defeats the British Empire to win independence, and now, he is the new nation's first president. To Nelly, he is all of these things, but most of all, he is her dear Grandpapa.
