Description For a stiff-lipped Founder of the United States, George Washington led an awfully exciting life. Soldier, farmer, statesman...he was even famous for his love of dancing. On this site, discover the real Washington at home and at war. Explore a 3D Mount Vernon in search of artifacts that reveal the many facets of the man. Meet the people who lived and worked on his estate. Play the harpsichord so he can dance with his beloved Martha. And serve as gun captain at Washington's greatest moment of military achievement, the siege of Yorktown. Washington's World has it all—everything, that is, except for a cherry tree.
