Happy Birthday President Washington

Happy Birthday George Washington! Yes, today we celebrate the life of our first President, the man whose face is on the one dollar bill. President Washington lead a fascinating life, both before his presidency and after. You can find all sorts of fun facts about him here like how he contracted smallpox while in Barbados, that he was an excellent dancer, and owned a distillery. There are also facts that have more to do with things that occurred during his presidency such as the fact that he never lived in Washington D.C. and that his second inaugural speech was the shortest on record. It really is interesting reading and learning about his history.
