When the father of our country was a boy, he copied by hand a list of rules written almost 150 years before, and then passed on from generation to generation. The rules covered everything from table manners and hygiene to integrity and citizenship, and they shaped the way Washington thought and acted as a boy and a man. Here are 50 of those rules, along with fun "translations" and cartoons for kids today.
The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and Mount Vernon served as research partners on the text.
