Excellent Universal Character

When George Washington died in 1799, the British Royal Navy’s Channel Fleet lowered its flags to half mast. The London Courier wrote, “The whole range of history does not present to our view a character upon which we can dwell with such entire and unmixed admiration.”

The title of this post, by the way, comes from something John Adams said about George Washington in 1775.
