Irving, who spent his final years at his home, Sunnyside, in New York’s Hudson Valley, is considered the Founding Father of American Literature. His biography of George Washington, which he wrote at Sunnyside, has been deemed “one of the most important biographies of the nineteenth century, and it still serves as one of most famous depictions of Washington’s life.”
