In Tribute
George Washington, the country’s first president, was born Feb. 22, 1732, at Bridges Creek, Westmoreland County, Virginia. After working as a surveyor, he went on to become Virginia’s adjutant general in the state militia.
He served many years in the military, enduring bitter cold winters and hardships. He led the country’s fight to achieve independence from the British during the Revolutionary War.
In 1787, he was chosen president of the new government, taking his oath of office in New York City. He served two terms and refused a third.
He retired to his estate, Mt. Vernon, Va., where he died at the age of 67 on Dec. 14, 1799.
His birthday was once a national holiday, but now he is labeled Presidents Day. Fly the flag in his honor on Feb. 22.
