American History Without George Washington?

Since this weekend is the one Americans are supposed to set aside to honor George Washington (rather than the shallow, watered-down "Presidents' Day"), I thought I'd pose this question: "Can you imagine American history without George Washington?"

It's a question that should interest not only early American history buffs, but Americans in general. A United States of America without George Washington would be a very different nation indeed -- if it existed at all. And it's a question I explore in my latest blog post over at "American Revolution & Founding Era."
