did not attend communion

The article mentions that. Says he did initially, but then changed. Nellie writes: I have heard her say that General Washington always received the sacrament with my grandmother before the revolution

We can only speculate what it was about the revolution that led Washington to stop receiving communion. Perhaps because of lives taken and an erroneous understanding of theology about communion? That's sheer speculation on my part.

I don't believe his motives were bad probably. I am thinking he had objections to the way Communion was officiated or some theology or something that made him reject communion in the way it was being conducted.
