The death of George Washington

Yes, very good link on Washington.  I've been in the room he died in and would HIGHLY recommend a trip to Mt Vernon.  He LOVED fish from the mighty Potomac and would pickle it for storage in big barrels.   Of course he had a rye whisky distillery as well.

His death of a swollen throat and such is pretty sad given he would have recovered easily with modern antibiotics.   Those wet clothes and his age and so forth doomed him in end.

Also, I've told the story of Billy Lee before on here.  Glad to see the article speaking to his freedom and pension on Mt Vernon.
