George Washington Printable (** for premium members only)

Did George Washington really chop down a cherry tree? And what’s this I hear about wooden teeth? Challenge the old myths and learn the truth about the man we call “The Father of our Country.”

Mount Vernon: Meet George Washington
“No estate in America is more pleasantly situated than this,” declared Washington, speaking of his eight-thousand acre home, Mount Vernon. Mount Vernon has changed very little over the last 200 years, except now you can tour it from the comfort of your home computer. If you begin at Meet George Washington, you will be guided through the entire web site: an interactive quiz, a Washington biography, the Mount Vernon tour, and an essay on Washington and slavery. This outstanding resource includes lesson plans for teachers.

Papers of George Washington
The Papers of George Washington was established in 1969 to compile and publish a complete edition of Washington’s correspondence. There are 135,000 Washington-related documents held in photographic form in the project’s offices. This website covers highlights from the project and includes a few excerpts such as his farewell address and Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation of 1789. Be sure to peruse the Educational Resources which include two slide shows, a “mini-lesson”, and a George Washington webquest.

PBS: Rediscovering George Washington
“Why should young Americans who care about their country and aspire to do something worthwhile with their lives be interested in the greatness of George Washington? For at least two reasons: First, although knowing what is worthwhile and what is possible is essential to living a good life and doing some good for our country, we are not born knowing these things.” Explore Washington’s great legacy with a biography, timeline, gallery of primary documents, and half-dozen of Washington’s letters read by Charlton Heston.
