Design a NEW Dollar Bill (Fun Facts about George Washington)

George Washington started school at 6 years old. He left school at 15 to become a surveyor because his mother couldn't afford to send him to college. At 26, he married Martha Dandridge Custis, a widow who had two children, Jacky and Patsy. Washington never had any children of his own. At 6 feet, 2 inches tall and 200 pounds, he was one of our biggest presidents. His favorite dishes were cream of peanut soup, mashed sweet potatoes with coconut, and string beans with mushrooms. He bred hound dogs, he treated like members of the family. He gave some of them unusual names: Tartar, Truelove, and Sweet Lips. Toothaches bothered him for years. When he was 57, he had all his teeth pulled. From then on, he wore ivory false teeth set in a silver plate. Although he helped plan the nation's new capital city that was named for him, he never lived there. New York City and, later, Philadelphia were the nation's capitals while he was president.
