In an interview with Bill Moyers, Mrs. Tuchman spoke of how much she admired George Washington’s courage and perseverance despite the enormous obstacles he faced and how she and her daughter encouraged one another with the rallying cry, “remember George.” George Washington, like all effective leaders, communicated an inspiring vision and lived it, valued people and gave them a voice. Under his leadership the colonists pulled off one of history’s greatest upsets by defeating the preeminent military power of their age with an under-trained, under-resourced
She is effective here because she is using power and history in her writing to persuade her audience. She wants her audience to see how much this means to women in society and how it is a dream for women. She wants them to see it is bigger than many things and not something to ignore.
