GEORGE ON MY MIND

Wish a great 4th of July to all my American friends (took this one in Wall Street, New York City)

 

George Washington (1732-1799) was the dominant military and political leader of the new United States of America from 1775 to 1799. He led the American victory over Great Britain in the American Revolutionary War as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army in 1775–1783. He presided over the writing of the Constitution in 1787 and was the unanimous choice to serve as the first President of the United States (1789–1797)

 

Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the USA commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain. It is the national day of the United States
