True Heroes: George Washington Mini-Unit

This President's Day, I am bringing a new monthly series to the blog, True Heroes.  I will be featuring a person from history each month, because I'm a total nerd and history buff (yes, I'm okay with that).  I will be choosing individuals that meet specific criteria:
  • Historically significant individuals
  • Held openly Christian values & actions that matched those values (does this mean there were perfect, no, of course not)
  • Humbly served to better their society and world
To start us off, I have appropriately chosen February's hero, George Washington.
