George Washington

Biography

American politician, the first president of the U.S. 1789-1797. As a wealthy Virginia plantation owner and a gentleman farmer, he also served as the Commander in Chief of the first American army during the Revolutionary War. In addition, he was the president of the Constitutional Convention in 1787. He was a big boned, six foot, four inch tall man, proud and a great leader.

Not much is known about Washington's early childhood. He went to live with his half brother shortly after the death of their father, Augustine, a Virginia landowner, when George was age 12 (4/12/1743). Washington is famous for the cherry tree story and having wooden teeth, neither of which are true. The cherry tree story was made up by a book salesman to promote sales on an biography that he had penned of Washington and his false teeth were really made of a combination of cow's teeth, ivory and metal. Less well known is that he was an animal lover so devoted to his horses that he required his grooms to brush his horses teeth, that he was one of the country's first millionaires and that he was the only president to not live in the White House.

Washington began surveying in the West in 1748 and in 1752, he inherited Mt. Vernon upon the death of his half-brother, Lawrence. He married Martha Dandridge Custis on 1/06/1759, whom he had met the prior March; he had an illness in December 1758 that was so severe that he was not expected to live for his wedding. They had no kids together but he raised Martha's two kids as his own.

On 11/06/1752, he had his first military appointment and joined the staff of British officer General Braddock in 1755. On 6/15/1755, he was appointed Commander-in-Chief and on 7/03 he took command of the continental army. On 8/15/1781, Washington received the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown. He surrendered his commission to Congress and returned to his home at Mount Vernon two days before Christmas in 1783.

Washington was inaugurated as America's first President on 4/30/1789, 1:00 PM, age 57, and was inaugurated for a second term on 3/04/1793. He retired from politics on 3/04/1797, returning to Mount Vernon.

Washington died on 12/14/1799, Mt. Vernon, VA. His wife died not long after, 1802.

(Wayne Turner confirms the data by email 6/2002, " Here is another reference for an important historical

chart--that of George Washington. A photograph of the

family history page from the family bible can be found

facing the title page of "George Washington, A Biography:

Young Washington," which is volume 1 of Douglas Southall

Freeman's multi-volume work. It was published by Charles

Scribner's Sons in 1949, New York. The entry--by an unknown hand according to the author--reads,"George Washington son to Augustine & Mary his wife was born 11th day of February 1731/32 about 10 in the morning..." Note the old style day and the mixed OS/NS year. England did not adopt January 1st as the beginning of the new year until 1752.

The problem of discovering the exact time remains, and a

straight conversion to LMT from LAT gives about 10:14 am."
