All honor to George Washington! From todays WaPo: "It was a a speech so moving the crowd wept. It was a speech so personally important George Washingtons hand shook as he read it until he had to hold the paper still with both hands. After the ceremony, he handed the thing to a friend and sped out the door of the State House in Annapolis, riding off by horse." The speech has been kept by a family for all these years, and now the state of Maryland has bought it.
Read the speech on line on our site, and say Thank You to the general.
