Summary: Of all the legendary figures in American history, George Washington is in a class by himself. So many trials and triumphs lie behind that face on the dollar bill-expeditions in the French and Indian War, command of the Continental Army, and leadership as America's first president under the Constitution. But many facts of his life are not common knowledge, and researchers are discovering that much of what was considered factual is fiction. This Undercover History program follows archaeologists and historians who have found fresh clues about the real George Washington. Their high-tech tools and techniques are peeling back layer after layer of misunderstanding and revealing the Founding Father we hardly knew.
