Though actual copies of Riding with George have an index, I’ve saved the back matter bibliography and footnotes — for space and convenience considerations — for this web page. This allows me to link the reader to modern web guides and primary source materials, which may interest academics and persons who might want to retrace the footsteps or hoof prints of George Washington.
Beneath are some of the top links that lead to primary source material and background on GW’s travels and sporting life. On the “Notes & Bibliography” page, I provide footnotes — often further comment on actual content — and then a complete bibliography for easy reference.
