WashingtonInn’s Twitter Trail – August 4, 2009

“Washington rode around among his army…and admonished…every one to fear God, to put away wickedness…& to practice Christian virtues.” Quote from the father of one of Washington’s generals and a pastor near Valley Forge

Taking no pay except expenses, General Washington vowed to serve his country for the cause of freedom. He later refused to be made king.

Someone has stated that “tyranny is always whimsical”. That’s why we don’t have a king, but rather a constitution with checks and balances.

“Without an humble imitation of the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, we can never hope to be a happy nation.” George Washington

“Since that happy hour when we made our pledges to each other, my thoughts have been continually going to you…” – George Washington to his wife, Martha
