Happy Birthday George Washington!

Today we celebrate George Washington's 278th birthday.

It was General Henry “Lighthorse Harry” Lee of Virginia who wrote the famous phrase used by John Marshall in the address to Congress on the death of Washington—"first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen."

Here are some good reads to remember our first president.
