George Washington's Will

43,910 views December 20, 2017
A will is the last piece of documentation you would expect to gain insight to a persons thought process and personality. However, George Washington's will surprisingly humanizes a man who has been immortalized in history books and public statues. Join us as we visit the Fairfax County Courthouse, and learn about the personal side few know of the historical giant.This includes his devotion to managing his properties, his vision for the future of the USA, and his views on slavery.
