    About The Book

    A business biography of George Washington, focusing on his many innovations and inventions.

    George Washington: general, statesman… businessman? Most people don’t know that Washington was the country’s first true entrepreneur, responsible for innovations in several industries. In George Washington, Entrepreneur, John Berlau presents a fresh, surprising take on our forefather’s business pursuits.

    History has depicted Washington as a gifted general and political pragmatist, not an intellectual heavyweight. But he was a serious inventor and inveterate tinkerer, and just as intelligent as Jefferson or Franklin. His library was filled with books on agriculture, chemistry, and engineering. He was the first to breed horses with donkeys to produce the American mule. On his estate, he grew countless varieties of trees and built a greenhouse full of exotic fruits and flowers. Unlike his Virginia neighbors who remained wedded to tobacco, Washington planted seven types of wheat. His state-of-the-art mill produced flour which he exported to Europe in sacks stamped GW Flour — one of the very first branded food products. Mount Vernon was also home to a distillery and became one of the largest American whiskey distributors of the era.

    Berlau’s portrait of Washington, drawn in large part from his journals and extensive correspondence, presents a side of him we haven’t seen before. It is sure to delight readers of presidential biography and business history.
