George Washington's Home

On our way up the Potomac we anchored across the river from Mount Vernon. Early the next morning we toured the estate which has a remarkable place in our history and is a wonderful place to wander about. We learned that the French considered George Washington to be a father of their revolution. General Lafayette gave him the key to the front door of the Bastille, which still hangs in the main hall.
