Washington’s Legacy

by Nancy Gere


Windham Fabric's Nancy Gere is proud to honor one our nation's greatest patriots. Without question of valor and the unwavering belief in the future of the United States, George Washington was the only US president who was unanimously elected. He ran unopposed for both terms and declined to run for a third term, setting a precedent which held until 1940. He fought in the wars against the French and Indians, serving as General Edward Braddock's aide in the disastrous campaign against Ft. Duquesne. His ability as a General, along with the French alliance and the growing weariness within Britain, brought the American Revolutionary war to a conclusion with the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown 19th October, 1781.
