George Washington gravesite
George Washington
Mt. Vernon, Virginia

“First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen.”
     —Henry “Light-Horse Harry” Lee, in a memorial address two days after Washington’s death

“The words of Mr. Lee were very kind, but another first is not often remarked upon, for I remember George was always first in line for the banana creme pie.”
     —Martha Washington
