Did Michael Moore produce this?
Sibelius | Texas | 05/05/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I was stunned by the extent to which National Geographic struggled to diminish the history of George Washington.

Nothing was left unattacked. Washington was a medicore leader at best. Washington only married Martha as a way to improve himself socially, and only after a failed attempt to move in on a married woman. (This based on a letter that was attributed to Washington, found and printed 100 years after it was alleged to be written, and never verified as coming from him by any scientific testing.) Of course, he really loved slavery and only freed the slaves after his and his wife's death because he was concerned about his legacy. Even his false teeth were proof that he abused slaves.

Naturally, his integrity and honesty was challenged as well. Their proof for this? Because he used disinformation as he was prosecuting the Revolutionary War. Almost every military commander will do this, but for Washington, it was proof he wasn't an honest person.

This DVD is so beneath National Geographic. I expect quality historical coverage from them. I don't expect a lilly-white propoganda speel about Washington from them, but this . . . this is nothing short of yellow journalism, intended to tear down one of our most important founding fathers.

Did Michael Moore produce this?"
Silly hatchet job on GW
Grimmy | MD USA | 05/19/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Although every facet of his life was described in such as way as to portray him as an ambitious, power-hungry mercenary who married for money, it was still interesting to see what Nat Geo's tack on the subject was until the narrator asserted that GW was, untrue to his reputation for honesty, "willing to blur ethical lines."

Why? Because GW used disinformation during the war to trick the British!

This "revelation" was so stupid that I stopped watching it right there. I hope we do not find ourselves fighting for our existence alongside these twerps who will be constantly harping on how "if we trick the enemy or lie to them maybe we don't deserve to win."

A Travisty

"Whomever is guilty of producing this piece of "insert your own profane explative" is ignorant of, and oblivious to, history, let alone reality. I teach management and leadership, George Washington was great at both of them, due principally to his outstanding character. To show this travisty to young people (or uneducated people) would be a crime!! If I could give 5 negative stars, I would."
Poor arguments, manipulated and possibly invented facts make
Akutra R. A. Cea | Phoenix, AZ | 11/09/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I have come to expect this sort of stuff from some historians...I could not believe that Nat Geo would actually participate in such a method deviation and fact manipulation. The "real" George Washington, yea right. I no longer feel safe watching history! Every time, I'm like how much are they twisting and fabricating? Soon I will not be sure if everything I know of history is actual or full of....lies. Having discovered several other Nat Geo's accounts to be similar....they seem to be DOUBTABLE, and in the back of my mind, I'm like it's probably full of... Why would they do that to us? What is the point? Perhaps they should be called "National Propaganda Machine of Geography"."
