I cannot tell a lie. One of the highlights of my hosted trip to Fredericksburg, VA was a visit to Ferry Farm – George Washington’s boyhood home from age six to age twenty-two.
We’ve all heard the tale of George chopping down a cherry tree and if it were true, it would have happened at Ferry Farm. It’s also where he threw a stone across the Rappahannock River and copied down the Rules of Civility. A lot happened at Ferry Farm!
