Today we wish a happy birthday to George Washington, born this day in 1732.This year would mark his 280th birthday! Not only was GW our nation’s first president, he is also the very GQ cover boy of our Presidents Fandex Family Field Guide.
As the first president, Washington set the standards for the American presidency: he selected the first cabinet, oversaw the bill of rights, warned against foreign alliances, and bowed out after 2 terms. Forty-three presidents have followed since then, but most have struggled to live up to Washington’s legacy. Read about them all in the Presidents Fandex–and if you have a minute, send your birthday regards to George!
