Washington family Bible

Description

In early America, bibles were often used to record important dates and events in a family’s history. The Washington family bible was used for this purpose. An interleaved page records in meticulous handwriting the marriage of Augustine Washington and Mary Ball, parents of George Washington, as well as George’s birth date and baptismal date (image courtesy of Mount Vernon Ladies' Association).
