Here is what we know about George Washington:
1. He was a general is the Revolutionary War (that freed us from England)
2. His house is called Mount Vernon
3. He said "No" to being the King of the United States and "Yes" to being the first President.
4. He did not live in the White House (it wasn't built yet)
5. His hair turned gray from fighting in the war
6. His nickname is "The Father of our Country"
7. He loved horses
8. He was very honest (we read the story about him chopping down the cherry tree and not telling a lie but we do not know if it is true or a legend!)
These are pictures of us with our General Washington hats on!
