Mount Vernon is privately owned and will remain open in the case of a government shutdown.

With the Continental Army threatening to dissolve around him, General George Washington led the remnants of his army across the icy Delaware River on Christmas night 1776 and routed a Hessian garrison at Trenton. The subsequent victories at the Battles of Second Trenton and Princeton secured Washington's place as one of the greatest generals in world history.
