Washington was much of a man, one could spend several lifetimes reading up on him. When I was investigating the cherry tree tale, said to have been invented by early biographer Parson Weems but to my mind, following that research, quite possibly true, it turned up that Washington and Weems were both Masons who moved in somewhat the same circles ... well, if you're into conspiracy stuff that may intrigue you as an interesting lead to follow.
I also worked on several features that took me into the mountains and valleys north and west of what was in Revolutionary times a swamp and is today Our Nation's Capital. It amazed me how often I found vast parcels of land that had belonged, and in some cases may still belong, to Washington's relations or friends.
As well as Father of Our Country, he was father of our real estate business -- not just "a surveyor," as we are told in school.
This is a nice big high relief pewter medal, the original the work of various notable French medallists and engravers active in Washington's lifetime, available at a reasonable cost because the replica was produced in abundance by the Philadelphia Mint.
It is a recreation of the medal presented to Washington for retaking Boston in 1776.
It's not an exact copy because Washington got a gold medal.
On the reverse he is seen pointing out the fleeing Brits to his officers.
