George Washington

You are viewing a stunning 1864 illustration of the Life of George Washington.  The leaf has pictures and a timeline of the key events in the life of Washington.  In the upper center inset, we see a picture of his childhood home, with his date of birth listed as February 22, 1732. The next image to the left shows Washington as a small boy, breaking up a quarrel.  In this picture he is described as a mediator. The upper left image shows a picture of his marriage in 1759.  The next image shows him taking command of the army in 1775.  The lower left image shows Washington as President in 1789. The image in the upper right shows him as a surveyor in 1748. Below that is an image of Braddock's defeat in 1755. We then see an image of George Washington at Yorktown, in 1781.  Here he is pictured on horseback.  The center image shows him resigning his commission in 1783.  This is a dramatic image of Washington.  In the lower right, we see George Washington on his deathbed in 1799.
