Happy Birthday, George

Since I gave Abe his birthday earlier this month, it is only fitting that George also gets his.

Our first president, George Washington, the only one ever elected unanimously:

Born: February 22, 1732, Westmoreland County, Virginia
Died: December 14, 1799, Mount Vernon, Virginia

First in war,
first in peace,
and first in the hearts of his countrymen.
--Henry Lee, III, eulogy for George Washington
