First in War & Peace; Seventh in Our Hearts
For two centuries, school children have known George Washington as the “Father of His Country”. By the 21st century the Commanding General of the Continental Army seems to be headed for the dust bin of history.

When the great First President died in 1799, Congress adopted the eulogy given my his fellow Virginian, Henry Lee: “First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen“.

Today, he ranks about seventh, behind Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, according to a report at ABC News, February 2005.
