CATO. John J. Miller has my favorite article of the day at National Review Online, entitled "America's Greatest Play." He discusses Cato, the play that George Washington was so fond of when leading the Continental Army during the American Revolution. I've never actually read the play--and don't recall even having heard about it until I read Richard Brookhiser's concise yet wonderful biography of George Washington, Founding Father, last year. Miller links to a Liberty Fund edition, which features a foreward by the excellent historian Forrest MacDonald. Liberty Fund sells some outstanding works of political philosophy. I've purchased from them before and plan on getting Cato through them.
