I am a history guy. History is super. The American Revolution is incredible and exciting to learn about. More, it is an amazing parallel to the situation in Iraq. I’ll write about that in the next post. What I want to write here is just a snuggly tidbit that I feel compelled to share with you.
Washington is often called “The Father of America” or, at least, a “founding father”. According to most historians’ accounts, Washington was most likely sterile and unable to have children. So, if you want to feel like a smarty at a party or jut marinate on this crazy irony: The Father of America could never be a father. Our “father” was sterile.
