Over the past 50 years, the portraits of George Washington have been removed, and so has most of the history from our children’s history books.  There is no longer a Washington’s Birthday Holiday for the one man, who gave birth to our nation, and our individual freedom, who presided over the Constitutional Convention, and guided our new nation as our First President.  You have to wonder how and why this could happen in our country!
