George Washington

George Washington, the first president of the United States, was born on this date in 1732. When Washington died in 1799, Henry Lee delivered the funeral oration, saying that of all Americans, Washington was "first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen."

The message on the card says:
Dear cousin
Arrived home + heard that Eugene Lynch (?) housekeeper was dead + buried. maybe you have heard of it.  Mary


  1. Whenever I come to your site I always find such fascinating cards. Thank you.

  2. What a great card - I love the pink and white stripes (not sure about the makeup George appears to be wearing, though).

  3. Do you mean the green eye shadow...or the blush?

    Wow what an awesome postcard.
    I love the colors they made me think of spring instead of snow :)
    This is truly a fun postcard and a very special tribute to our First President
    Thank you so much for hanging in there with me as I blog on and off again.
    Taking care of my Mom has become more of a full time job than I first realized.
    Big Hugs from Texas
    Blessings of joy to you !
    Happy Trails
