Day 50: Mount Vernon

Mount Vernon, Virginia is the homestead of George Washington. It was very interesting in that they didn't wash history clean and talked a lot about how he had hundreds of slaves. They even had newspaper clippings of a time he offered a reward for three runaway slaves, which is not at all how I perceive Washington in my mind. Of course they also talked about how he was largely responsible for the creation of our country and in all other respects was absolutely amazing.
