A daily dose of Inspiration for you!

I want to take the approximately month and a half to review our past Presidents as inspiration.  All adult citizens are preparing to vote for the next President of the United States of America.  Looking back, may prepare each of us to make our decision of who we think is best to move us forward.  We can be inspired by the Presidents of the United States of America.

 

George Washington was the inaugural holder of the office of President.  This made George Washington the 1st President of the United States of America.  He held the office from April 30, 1789 until March 4, 1797.  His Vice President was John Adams.  George Washington was Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War.  He was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.  He presided over the convention that drafted the United States Constitution and set the precedent for serving two terms of office before retiring from the Presidency.  He is remembered fondly as the Father of His Country.

 

George Washington was born February 22, 1732 in Bridges Creek, Westmoreland County, Virginia, in what was then British America.  He married Martha Dandridge in 1759.  They raised her children from her previous marriage, but never had children together.  He died on December 14, 1799 in Mount Vernon, Virginia, U.S.

 

One of George Washington’s nicknames he was known as was The Sage of Mount.  This nickname came from Mount Vernon being the name of his family estate and from George Washington being known for his wisdom.  George Washington is remembered as a leader during war and a leader during peace.  Monuments and memorials were constructed or named to honor him.  In addition, there is postage and currency with his portrait.  There are many famous stories with George Washington at the center of them.

 

Be inspired!  Have a bright day!
