G is for George Washington House. This is the only residence that George Washington stayed out outside of America, and he did so in 1751 at the ripe age of 19. Felt pretty cool getting to know a little more history of the island and the connections with America.

During our time in Alexandria, the only spot we specifically stopped at and toured was Christ Church, which has a long and unique history. Plus, it was kinda cool to sit in George Washington’s box pew.

Since its opening in 1785, Gadsby’s Tavern has had a reputation for good food. Even George Washington frequented the tavern when he was in town. And after trying their delicious butternut squash ravioli and gingerbread dessert, I understand why this place has been popular since post-revolutionary times!

Funny how we weren’t even looking for it, and were admiring the house when we saw the name on the plaque! Oliver Wolcott! “The Oliver Wolcott House is a historic colonial home at South Street near Wolcott Avenue in Litchfield, Connecticut. It was built in 1753 by Oliver Wolcott Sr., a signer of the Declaration of Independence and the Articles of Confederation, and a state militia leader in the American Revolutionary War. It is the oldest house in the borough. It was the home of Oliver Wolcott Sr. (1726-1797), and is where his son Oliver Wolcott Jr., was born. Many distinguished guests visited the Wolcott House, including Lafayette and George Washington, who stayed there in 1780 during his first visit to Litchfield. The house was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1971. It is located on South Street, nearly opposite to Wolcott Avenue. The house is not open to the public.” - Wikipedia #lafayettewashere #lafayette #georgewashingtonwashere #oliverwolcott #declarationofindependence #litchfieldct #ctbucketlist #ctvisit #stillrevolutionary #connecticut

Do you know the story behind the six-pointed star? When we toured the Betsy Ross house in Independence National Historic Park we were told that George Washington used the six-pointed on the flags he first used, like the one here in Valley Forge. Betsy Ross showed him how she could make a five pointed star out of fabric or paper using a few folds and just one snip. Betsy Ross herself  taught Josiah how to make one. Check out the link in our video to learn how with your kids. I promise you it will help you with some kid craft project in the future - especially if you’ve got a kid that loves flags like mine!  .

NEW Video on YouTube tells you the story and takes you through George Washington’s winter camp!!

Parson Weem's Fable (Amon Carter Museum of American Art)

Mason Locke Weems, more commonly known as Parson Weems, was an American author who wrote several biographies of historical figures, the most famous of which was his 1800 biography of George Washington, The Life of Washington. Written a year after Washington's death, Weems's biography served as the point of origin for many long-held myths about Washington, in particular the famous cherry tree story.

In that vignette, a six year-old Washington, overly enthusiastic in the use of his new hatchet, cuts up his father's prized young cherry tree. When the older Washington demands to know what happened to his tree, young George, looking at his father with the sweet face of youth brightened with the inexpressible charm of all-conquering truth, admits that it was his fault. His father is overjoyed with George's expression of virtuous honesty, and all is forgiven.1 Weems is also considered the originator of the story of Washington praying at Valley Forge, as well as many other lesser-known mythological anecdotes that became part of Americans' fundamental understanding of Washington.

Weems's books did receive some criticism at the time. One reviewer characterized the first edition as eighty pages of as entertaining and edifying matter as can be found in the annals of fanaticism and absurdity.2 Despite such critiques, Weems's approach proved very popular; his books became bestsellers and are largely responsible for the creation of the image of Washington most widely known today. Weems stands at the forefront of Washington’s long, steady transformation into an American icon, and studying his work and its reception reveals a great deal about the American public and its relationship with its national heroes. .

Where does your moral compass point?

One of the most important tools of the trade was a surveyor's compass. When mounted on a staff, the compass enabled the user to establish a line from a known reference point to the point of interest and determine its bearing [W-579/A-B]

Washington was well on his way to a successful and profitable career. In an effort to establish himself as a member of the gentry class, he worked hard, saved his money, and bought unclaimed land.
