Photo of the Week: General George Washington

General George Washington

America’s history is rich in martial warfare. The American Revolution freed us from England and allowed America to become a nation whose freedom has been revered and prized the world over. Freedom gained at the expense of great courage, vision and, unfortunately, bloodshed.

Pictured here in the Boston Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, is a statue of General George Washington, the first President of the United States of America, who led the Colonial Army against the British. Bostonians have done a remarkable job in preserving the rich legacy of America as well as Boston’s role in her revolution. If you’ve never been to Boston, it is a trip worth making. Touring its great historical sites leaves one in awe of the immense sacrifice and character of those who fought and died so that we, the collective mass of Americans, could be free.
