To celebrate George Washington’s birthday this coming Monday, here are a few facts about our first President.


1. Washington did not have a middle name.


2. He was made an honorary citizen of France.


3. No one will ever rank higher than him in the US military.


4. He was one of the sickliest presidents in history. (diphtheria, tuberculosis, smallpox, dysentery, malaria, tonsillitis, carbuncle, pneumonia, and epiglottitis were all ailments Washington endured)


5. He never chopped down that cherry tree.


6. He was a massive letter writer. (It is said that he wrote between 18,000-20,000 letters)


7. Before becoming a General during the war, he was a master surveyor.


8. Before fighting the British in the Revolutionary War, he served with the British during the French and Indian War.


9. He was a dog lover. Known to have kept more than 30 Foxhounds.


10. He didn’t have wooden teeth. When he attended his first inauguration, he only had one tooth left in his head. Throughout the rest of his life, he had different sets of dentures including ivory, brass, horse teeth, and yes, even human teeth.
