Happy Washington’s Birthday!


Gilbert Stuart "Williamstown Portrait of George Washington"

“First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen.”

As eulogized by “Henry Lee, a soldier and political leader from Washington's home state of Virginia.”


"General George Washington Crossing the Delaware at the Battle of Trenton on Christmas Night 1776," by Emmanuel Leutze

David Ramsay’s The Life of George Washington

Portrait by John Trumbull 1782

Are you confused as between Washington’s Birthday and “President’s Day”? I sure was, until Rebecca McCarthy sorted things out for me.
