During my Christmas vacation we headed over to the Missouri History Museum to check out the Discover the Real George Washington: New Views from Mount Vernon, exhibit that they currently have. It was a great exhibit. There a more information about his life prior to becoming President and during his youth. There isn’t much information or pictures of him as a young man and we were able to see how they created likenesses of him.
There was information about his childhood and how Mount Vernon became his home and the pride he took in owning the land. There was background information on how he made his way into the army and became a great leader.
We even got to see his fake teeth. It was a little creepy to see dentures that were a couple hundred years old.
