First in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen.

As a warrior, her served refusing pay and led in the achievement of our independence.
As a statesman and lawgiver, his guiding wisdom assisted in framing the fundamental law.
As the first president of the United States, he governed with firmness and moderation.
As a patriot, he bequeathed his bright example and earnest counsel and immortal legacy to his country.
As a man, his character stood supreme in its grand equipoise of noblest qualities.
Modest as great, prudent as brave, he gave the best years of his life to the public weal and died in voluntary retirement.
The brightest star in the constellation of the great men of all time.
