Warrior Poet Profiles: George Washington
Warrior Poet Profiles: George Washington with instructor John Lovell and Revolutionary War reenactor and political activist William Temple.
In this video we discuss George Washington's life and legacy, to include the good and the more controversial. Washington was highly respected as a man of incredible moral character, influence, strength, and fortitude, however, many today would cast judgment on him as a slave owner (and perhaps rightfully so), as well as a few other historical grienances. One thing is certain though, our flickering American Revolution would have been extinguished if he were not there to fight it. Some historians call George Washington the 'indispensable man', fighting against all odds, against the British, Indians, disease, the cold, congress, and allies seeking to supplant him. In the video we see his greatness shine in the freezing plains of Valley Forge, just one year after the colonists had forged the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
William Temple is a political activist heavily involved with the Tea Party movement and has appeared on major news networks such as Fox News, CNN, C-SPAN, as well as by Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report, and Saturday Night Live (SNL). Time Magazine also pictured Mr. Temple. Most recently William Temple was invited to speak at Donald Trump's inauguration to represent the historical personage of Patrick Henry.
Some key historical figures and founding fathers discussed in the video: Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, Aaron Burr, Benjamin Rush, John Adams, Marquis de Lafayette, Baron Friedrich von Steuben, Benedict Arnold, Patrick Henry
