The private lives of great men like George Washington and Patrick Henry are almost as interesting to me as the reasons they are still famous. An example of interesting personal information is that George Washington had little former education. His older brothers had studied abroad, but before George was old enough to go, his father died, and he was unable to go overseas. His education was not past the 6th grade. Nevertheless, by the time he retired he was worth (in today's money) in excess of $20 million. Can you share a less-known personal story or background of a Revolutionary war figure? Thank you!
