This is the story of George Washington's emotional parting with his most loyal officers on December 4, 1783, just days after final victory in the Revolution. In a moving and utterly silent occasion at Fraunces Tavern in New York City, officer after officer crossed the room to shake Washington's hand and bid their beloved commander goodbye. The story of each man's exploits in the war is vividly recounted in a patchwork of vignettes that capture the triumph and drama of the war they waged for liberty. Illustrated with period art.
