  • My favorite quote about George Washington, although I can't quote it exactly, was the one where someone called him a bigger man than any one thing that he had accomplished. Glancing back into history, I find that quote to be so true, for Washington was a man of honor and made his decisions based upon honor and integrity.
  • Washington was a man of tremendous influence, inspiring others around him to fight tyranny with a passion. He was an eloquent speaker, although he had no formal education, and encouraged others through his own words and actions.
  • I hope you will find this quiz useful in your studies of American History. The quiz covers Washington's personal life with his family, as well as his professional life as a military commander and first President of the United States. I hope you will also watch the video below, which I think is superb!
  • After you have finished taking the quiz, I would appreciate any comments you might have (and your score if you want to show it). The Comment section is at the end of the hub.

"The Prayer at Valley Forge"  - A 1992 painting by Arnold Friberg - American troops had been defeated time and time again by the British during the Revolutionary War, so George Washington knelt in prayer, asking for strength to go on fighting.

"Washington Crossing the Delaware" painted in 1851 by Emanuel Leutze.  Beautiful painting, although historically inaccurate according to historians.
