    Washington Drawing

    George Washington,  the father of our country.  Childless with his wife, he was rumored to have fathered a small boy with one of his “comfort” slaves. During the last years of his life, a young African boy was often seen sitting along side Mr. Washington on buggy rides in and around Mt. Vernon.
