Portrayed by
George Moore


Born in 1732, a third generation Englishman in the Virginia colony, schooled at home by tutors, George Washington became an emissary of the Governor of Virginia to the French in Ohio.

Married at age twenty-six to the wealthy Martha Custis, a widow with two children, their marriage endured for more than forty years.

Washington was elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses in Williamsburg, was later appointed Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army and served eight years in the War for Independence.

Losing more battles than he won, but winning the final Battle of Yorktown, he returned to his home on Christmas Eve, 1783. He had served for eight years without salary, billing only for his expenses.

Elected president by fifty-five delegates, he presided over the assembly which brought forth our Constitution of the United States.

Though he wanted only to be a country gentleman farmer for the rest of his life, he was called upon to serve his countrymen once again as the first President in a new nation. He served two terms before he returned to his beloved Mount Vernon home to "live under my own vine and fig tree."



"First in war, first in peace, first in the hearts of his countryman," was the proclamation at the time of his death in 1799.

George Moore portrays George Washington as General or as President wearing the military or civilian clothing appropriate to each office.

"George Washington Himself" is infinitely variable in length and can be adapted to special needs and interests. Moore's work transports the audience back to the colonial era.

"George Washington's Christmas" is available in November and December. Either program can be followed by a question and answer period.

Available also for parades, centennials, etc., Moore, a retired minister, has even officiated at weddings as Washington. Also, his wife, Beulah, portrays Martha Washington.
