Posted on 02/22/2014 5:54:58 AM PST by Master Zinja
Today is the birthdate of George Washington, first President of the United States, general of the Continental Army and president of the Constitutional Convention of 1787. On this date, we raise Washington's Commander-In-Chief flag, the flag of Washington's Army command. Following his death, Washington was eulogized by Congressman Henry Lee:
First in warfirst in peaceand first in the hearts of his countrymen, he was second to none in the humble and enduring scenes of private life; pious, just, humane, temperate, and sincere; uniform, dignified, and commanding, his example was as edifying to all around him as were the effects of that example lasting.
And now rejected by the Progressives.
We have the roll model to end all roll models, an American born hero. We can’t do any better for a role model today.
“How the mighty have fallen.”
