23 December ~ A Great Day in American History ~ for the World!

Few folks realize that the all important day Statesmanship came to reign supreme in America was the 23rd day of December in 1783, when General George Washington, gave a great Christmas gift to America, when he traveled to the State Capitol in Annapolis, Maryland.

There the Continental Congress was convened, and rather than arrest the legislators for their neglect in paying or supplying food for the soldiers of the American Army, as part of a coup as past military generals had done, or disband the legislature as Lord Protector and General Oliver Cromwell had done, General Washington did the decisive difference that gave birth to America as a Republic, so is rightly lauded as "the father of His country."

Following the examples of Senator Cato and farmer Cincinnatus of the Roman Republic, and more so of Jesus in John 6:15, General Washington appeared without his Commander-in-Chief blue sash, surrendered his sword, and resigned as General and Commander-in-Chief, so that never again would the officers, the soldiers, or even the people of America talk of making him, or anyone else, their "king".

Washington then "departed from them, and went unto the mountain", Mount Vernon, to celebrate Christmas at home with his beloved Martha and their grandchildren for the first time during the eight arduous years of America's victorious War for Independence.

When word reached King George III, of Washington's actions, he remarked about his humility in not seizing the reigns of power but rather resigning and submitting to the civilian powers, that Washington "...was the greatest man of his age, or perhaps any age."

Yes, indeed, by giving away the power he had in his hands, George Washington earned the honored status of "The Man for the Millenniums", the most important man in the world in the past 1000 years!

Might it be wise for "We the People" of America to learn again why Washington was so highly respected in his time? Why he should be so respected in these times, and for all time?

Washington was a true "Revolutionary", a man who changed the world for the better!

...sharing an account of many of the highlights of the past 7 years serving America as

"The Spirit of George Washington LIVES!"

Please, next Click on the "Comments" word below to send me a message.

Please include in your "Comments" message what your idea is to incorporate George Washington, or any of several other Founding Fathers, Jefferson, Henry, Monroe, or Lincoln, into a unique motivational, inspirational, educational, and entertaining presentation on the Core Value of "For America's future (building up on our past)"

We can then discuss by email or phone your targeted dates for your program or event.

If we work together in advance, and that is what you wish to occur, "George Washington" can help you substantially to increase the media exposure for your event and organization.

"George Washington" has several times been on national television and radio, and his picture has been in newspapers all across America, and even in the Economist of London.

When you meet THIS George Washington and experience one of his presentations, the Spirit of GW is alive and you will feel like you have met the "real thing".

Don't delay, contact us today!

Remember that General Washington planned, coordinated and executed the Victory at Trenton in 7 days, and also envisioned victory, planned for Victory years later at Yorktown, then stayed the course to final peace before resigning to the Congress in Annapolis 7 years later.

Whether 7 days, 7 months, or even 7 years in the future,...

"Now is the time for all good men..." ("man" includes both genders, as presidents, principles, or principals, and too, meeting planners) " come to the aide of their country..." or their company, college, conference, convention, civic organization, church, or class, contact:

George Washington may or may not be able to match your schedule, but one of the several Founding Fathers (alternate interpreters) could stand in most capably. Please send your question as a comment, and we will see who can create a positive "Revolution" in your group.

Thank you. I look forward to working with you.

Your most humble & obedient servant,

James Renwick Manship, Sr.
Aide to GW
