On December 14, 1799, George Washington, the man described by fellow soldier and Virginian Henry Lee as “first in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen” dies at his Mount Vernon estate in Virginia.
Born in Westmoreland County, Virginia, the second son from the second marriage of a colonial plantation owner, Washington rose to eminence on his own merit. His first job at age 17 was as a surveyor in the Shenandoah Valley. In 1752, he joined the British army and served as a lieutenant in the French and Indian War. When the war ended, Washington left the army and returned home to Virginia to manage Mount Vernon, the plantation he had recently inherited upon the death of his older brother. He married a wealthy widow, Martha Dandridge Custis, in 1759. Although the couple had no children, Washington adopted Martha’s son and daughter from her previous marriage. While in Virginia, Washington served in the colonial House of Burgesses and, like many of his compatriots, grew increasingly frustrated with colonial rule by the British government. He soon joined his co-revolutionaries in the Continental Congress.

President Trump addresses the increased amount of contradiction from the left wing politicians. A clear and utterly embarrassing attempt at continued, unnecessary friction to hold on the presidents viable initiatives.
Mi experiencia por esta ciudad fue tan corta que en realidad no pude conocer muy a fondo lo que trae por descubrir, eso sin mencionar que la lluvia estuvo constantemente presente. Así que solo recorrí los alrededores de todos los museos y monumentos, sin ingresar. A simple vista es notable el orden que mantiene la ciudad, las calles, y el sentido cultural que refleja a través de estos lugares abiertos al público (en su mayoría gratis). Además, curiosamente encontré un lindo restaurante con mi nombre. (Confieso que no comí ahí, solo fui por la foto. Pero tengo foto hasta con el mesero 😂🙊) #washingtondc#usa#trip#whitehouse#pentagonwashingtondc • Septiembre 2018
