Maurizio Valsania discusses “First Among Men: George Washington and the Myth of American Masculinity”

Zoom

George Washington has often been depicted as America at its unflinching best: tall, shrewd, determined, resilient, stalwart, and tremendously effective in action. But this aggressive and muscular version of Washington is largely a nineteenth-century creation. Without diminishing Washington’s extraordinary legacy, Valsania catalogs how later generations projected their own understandings of what made a “great man” onto Washington’s facade and tests these depictions against the material and documentary evidence Washington left behind. The result is the George Washington Prize–winning book for 2023.
