Although Washington's  formal
schooling was indeed 
 he taught himself extensively
 through his lifelong habit of
 independent study.
His personal library, one of the
 largest in America
at the time,
 contained over a thousand books
 on government, history,
 biography, military affairs, and agriculture.
