A former government colleague of mine, a young history enthusiast, has put together a handsome website on George Washington, "First in Peace," well worth a visit.
I was going to peruse President Obama's proclamation of the national holiday, but I can't find the official document on the White House website. Can anyone come up with it? Thanks.
Treppenwitz: I forgot to post this charming essay on Washington in art in three dimensions, by Catesby Leigh, who is writing a book on American public architecture. Look for his essays in the Wall Street Journal.
