mount_vernon A note written by George Washington’s granddaughter, Elizabeth "Eliza" Parke Custis, indicates that this coat "made of the first American cloth sent to General Washington and much worn by him." The garment no longer retains its buttons, as Eliza gave them away as relics. #cold #follow #history #like 1w

Valencia George Washington Mount Vernon
mount_vernon On September 17, 1787—the very day that the Constitution was adopted—Washington bid farewell to his fellow delegates. A far less momentous event occurred that day, but it gives insight into Washington’s interests at the time; he paid a bookseller 22 shillings, six pence in Pennsylvania currency for “The History and Adventures of the Renowned Don Quixote.” Washington took his copy of Don Quixote with him when he left Philadelphia the following day and the volumes soon found a place in his Mount Vernon library. #history #like #books #followme 1mon
