Educating the World with Cartoons, Caricatures, Illustrated Humor, and Even Fine Art
Does anyone know the single greatest act of Civility that
bestowed on the then-new United States?
No it wasn't that George led the country to independence in the American Revolution or that he held the troops together at Valley Forge. Nor that he voluntarily stepped down to retire to private life after the war (thus earning him the title the "American Cincinnatus").

Would that all our leaders be so civil!
