The catalog of an exhibition in celebration of the 250th anniversary of George Washington's birth in 1982. The Smithsonian Institution is custodian of two important collections of Washington memorabilia. One came from the Lewis family in direct descent from Eleanor Parke Custis Lewis, granddaughter of Martha Washington, & the other from the Peter family in direct descent from Martha Parke Custis Peter, also a granddaughter of Martha Washington. Important pieces had been added from other private collectors to these rich holdings through the years. This exhibit assesses George Washington -- both the myth & the man -- in terms of modern historiography. Color photos.
