The Farewell Address is perhaps the most important document in American history, providing a vision for the future of America and her leaders. The background and history of it are as important as listening to the complete address itself.

I'm not sure how they selected the narrator - but they clearly chose the wrong person. Ruined an excellent piece of work.
the Magnificent Washington in his farewell address was read by what sounded like a cab driver in a small apartment possibly on the toilet. I think once he paused mid-sentence to take a drink of beer. other times pausing perhaps to shift himself and you can hear a squeaky chair. Other than that Washington's address is great.
