George, no matter what might be the odds against him, or what superior
advantages the enemy might have in weapons or ground, was always sure to
come off victorious. He was a handsome boy, uncommonly tall, strong, and active

is still shown, where, ...

Thus in 1864 Morrison Heady produced a juvenile work on Washington, The
Farmer Boy, and How He Became Commander-in-Chief. In this the cherry- tree
tale was set at Christmas-time, and the hatchet was described as a little Indian
tomahawk brought by Santa Claus. George first used it, virtuously, to chop some
firewood for the family, then mischievously upon the cherry-tree. His father,
finding the damaged tree, suspected a little slave-boy, Jerry, and was about to
whip him when ...

The homily was irresistible; by 1825 Weems's biography had gone through forty
editions, and forty more were to appear in due course. The cherry-tree story —

camps. Farm boys turned soldiers fired their muskets at random, often using their

military governor of Massachusetts and commander of the army occupying
Boston in ...
