I saw this picture of General Washington while going though the Mercury One Enlightenment through History tour in Utah back in July. The story behind it is what is so amazing!
One of the British soldiers walked up on General Washington in this stance during the war. As the Brit soaked in what he was seeing, he realized that he was fighting on the wrong side. He knew that George Washington had God’s favor based on this image of humility, strength, and fortitude.
The only thing about the painting that is not accurate is where he is looking. It has been said that George Washington said his prayers out loud while looking straight up to heaven. My guess is the British soldier heard the content of his prayer too.
