Besides being a general and the first president of the United States, George Washington was also a farmer, who enjoyed experimenting with seeds, tools, and fertilizers. He tinkered with plows, designed a sixteen-sided barn, and plotted the location of each new tree he planted. Through his letters and diaries, we learn how his efforts to create a self-sufficient farm at Mount Vernon mirrored his struggle to create a free nation.
