Happy Birthday George Washington!
"I can only say that there is not a man living who wishes more sincerely than I do to see a plan adopted for the abolition of slavery."
"I have no other view than to promote the public good, and am unambitious of honors not founded in the approbation of my Country."
"I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man. "
He was Commander and Chief during our Revolution, and our first President.
