1) George Washington in the Classroom
Classrooms across America used to have pictures of George Washington in them. This has stopped in recent years as the mists of time take us further and further from the founding chapters of our shared American History. This should not, and must not happen. Washington once stated when speaking about truth:
"Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains to bring it to light."
Do you know, or want to nominate a school to receive a portrait of our First Founding Father to be displayed prominently in a school?

These elegant pictures of George Washington help remind students and staff alike of the words of Washington about freedom:
“Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth.”

Help the George Washington Society help the Hale-Byrnes House...
On September 6th, 1777 General George Washington held a council of war at the Hale-Byrnes House. During that visit, it has been documented that Washington's men sat under the already full-grown Sycamore tree in front of the house. At present, the tree is nearing the end of its life.
In order to memorialize the event and the historical value of the tree, the Hale-Byrnes House Board has reached out to well known Revolutionary War artist Pamela White to capture in painting the event, the tree, and the Hale-Byrnes House. The Hale-Byrnes House will receive the original painting and there will be prints for purchase. The artist's website at https://www.whitehistoricart.com/ is interesting and informational.
To raise funds for the painting, we are asking members and friends and interested others for donations. The ultimate goal which will pay for the painting, which will become a prominent part of the Hale-Byrnes Collection, and related prints which they will sell, is $5,000. They have over $3,000.
Any amount that can be contributed, will be greatly appreciated. The Hale-Byrnes House is also a 501 C-3 and contributions are deductible.
