As commander in chief of the Continental Army, George Washington led our nation to independence. As president of the Constitutional Convention, he presided over the creation of our new instrument of government. And, as the first president of the United States, he led our country through the early, turbulent years of nationhood. George Washington’s leadership, character, and civic responsibility remain examples to follow today.

Now your school, public library, and State or Federal government office can celebrate Washington’s character, leadership, and accomplishments by hanging a beautifully-framed replica of Rembrandt Peale’s Porthole Portrait of George Washington. It is specially sized (30”x 36”) to take a place of honor in your main office, auditorium, or library.
