George Washington’s Final Battle

The Epic Struggle to Build a Capital City and Nation

Watson brings to life the very human father of our country. He takes George Washington down from his pedestal and invites us to judge his triumphs and setbacks from the earthen battlefields of the American frontier to the political salons of our nascent republic.”

Escape!

The Story of the Confederacy’s Infamous Libby Prison and the Civil War’s Largest Jail Break

Robert Watson has done it again! His insightful and historically rich narrative brings to life the ingenuity of the prisoners in the “Confederate Bastille” who undertook one of the most remarkable and daring escapes this country has ever witnessed, the largest in US history and one that, sadly, has been long forgotten.
