How George Washington survived so many close encounters with the Grim Reaper – in the wilderness frontier, on the battlefield, from serious illness, and in terrifying accidents – can be read only in the story of a steady succession of miracles. For the incredible fact that he survived all of these encounters (except of course the last) to live sixty-seven years is a consummation for which untold millions can be eternally grateful.
