Washington’s Vision

The winter before Salem’s first settlers staked their claims along the headwaters of Tenmile Creek in what was then northern Virginia, Washington delivered his first Annual Message (State of the Union address) to the Congress in New York City. It makes an informative and enjoyable read of about fifteen minutes. In it, his vision and practical experience are combined to present an outlook that may bring as much encouragement to us today as it did then to the first congress.
