Integrity and firmness is all I can promise; these, be the voyage long or short, never shall forsake me although I may be deserted by all men. -George Washington to Henry Knox, Mount Vernon, April 1, 1789

Exhibition Interactives

At the end of the 18th century, the United States was less than one-third its current size. George Washington probably never imagined that the country would one day span some 3,000 miles. But the marks of his achievements can be found in every state today, from the way our government works to the names of the places where we live. In this exhibition interactive, you can click on a state to see a list of places that were named after Washington.
