Today we celebrate the birth of the man recognized as the Father of our country. #georgewashington was a man of principle and virtue. His valor and courage helped win the #americanrevolution, and his prudence and leadership helped the new nation succeed during its first years as a #republic. As the first #presidentoftheunitedstates, he led with distinction and honor, and set an example for all his predecessors to come.

Mark your calendars: The Halifax Resolves is celebrating its 242nd Anniversary this April 12th. And we’ll be celebrating all weekend long, the 12th - 14th. The Halifax Resolves was the first official action by an entire colony recommending independence from Great Britain. There will be fascinating demonstrations, guest speakers, programs for children and students, and many other wonderful activities. A fabulous artisans craft fair will be held on our main street in Historic Halifax on the 14th. You don’t want to miss any of it! @halifaxcvb @halifaxnc1776 @nc_historicsites @visitnc .

Vintage fold-out 1932 color lithographed map showing the travels of George Washington, printed more than 86 years ago! http://ow.ly/7Kf450gyuLY It shows the routes followed by George Washington on his travels through eastern North America during four periods of his life: 1732-1758 (Surveying and French-Indian campaign) 1759-1774 (Travels to West) 1775-1783 (Revolutionary War) 1784-1799 (Travels after the War) The coverage area extends from Maine to Savannah, west to the Cumberland Gap, and there are inset plans of New York and the lower Hudson, Tidewater Virginia, Mount Vernon, Philadelphia, and Boston. Places visited by Washington are lettered in red, and the map is an excellent reference to the alignment of Colonial highways. This map opens to a generous 29" x 20" and was published by the National Geographic Society, Washington, DC. This is an original, authentic National Geographic Society map, not a reproduction or modern reprint, and it is fully guaranteed to be genuine. It is copyrighted © 1931 and was published as a supplement to the January 1932 edition of National Geographic Magazine, in cooperation with the United States Commission for the Celebration of the Two Hundredth Anniversary of the Birth of George Washington. This map is in very good condition, bright and clean, with no marks or writing. The folds have weakened in a couple of places and are reinforced on the reverse side with archival tape. #georgewashington #washingtonsbirthday #president #history #learn #explore @NatGeo @NatGeoMaps #antiquemap #lithograph #travel #antique #map #revolutionarywar #americanrevolution #mapforsale

If you think #history is boring then you haven't been to one of our History Book Club discussions. Today's talk about #sarahvowell's Lafayette in the Somewhat United States was energetic and informative. A great example of lifelong learning in action and the power of partnerships (thanks @artsandlectures!). #sbplibrary #sbplbookclubs #tli #thematiclearninginitiative #lafayette #americanrevolution

Today’s the Birthday of George Washington, born February 22, 1732 at Mount Vernon, Virginia. Hero of the American Revolutionary War and First American President of the United States from 1789-1797. Died on December 14, 1799 at Mount Vernon, Virginia and his last words were “‘Tis well.” One of the Founding Fathers of the United States. And he also had his own Continental headquarters flag. #georgewashington #americanpatriots #americanhistory #foundingfathers #americanpresidents #unitedstates #americanrevolution #historychannel #alpharanger1849 #historyismypassion #historymajor #walkinghistorybook

In 1791 the US passed the 2nd Amendment aimed at giving US people the power to bear arms and rise against a tyrannical Government should the need arrive to protect the free state. The Exact words: “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” This picture highlights the difference between the favoured gun of 1791 and the one used in the recent shootings at Parkland in Florida. One was used by trained militia marksmen and the other was available over the counter to a deranged 19 year old. American gun laws are no longer fit for purpose and if your President thinks arming teachers is the way forward then your President is no longer fit for purpose! #gunlaw #usa #trump #trumpet #trumps #florida #parkland #2ndamendmentbullshit #nra #paranoia #makeamericasafeagain #3rdworldpolicies #riseupamerica #americanrevolution #guncontrol #ripparkland #america

Though limited in numbers, men of colour did, in fact, serve in the regular Regiments of the British Army during the war. An excellent example of this, is that of the bugler of the 40th Regiment of Foot, in the Xavier della Gatta painting "the Battle of Germantown". The bugler can be seen when closely examining the painting, which can now be seen in person at the Museum of the American Revolution, in Philadelphia. #blackhistorymonth #livinghistory #americanrevolution #freedom

Today we're flying a replica of what's purported to be the "Headquarters" flag of George Washington, who was born #otd in 1732! Relatives of our first President claimed that the flag was used to mark Washington's presence throughout much of the American Revolution. The original is in possession of the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia, PA! Did you know that, according to the Julian calendar that was in use throughout the British Empire until 1752, Washington was actually born on February 11th? When the Gregorian calendar was finally adopted, dates in colonial Virginia shifted forward 11 days, meaning we now recognize Washington's birthday as February 22nd--wow! #whatsthatflag #omgflags #funwithflags #georgewashington #americanrevolution 🇺🇲️
