George Washington was a man who was attracted to activity, mastering almost every sport of his day; archery, fox hunting, swimming, wrestling, and pool! According to Thomas Jefferson, Washington was "the best horseman of the age" and others remarked that he "rode, as he did everything else, with ease, elegance, and with power." Letters indicate the Washington played strenuous games of catch with his aides-de-camp during the Revolutionary War. Although there is no evidence that ever attempted gymnastics, with this delightful wooden toy it isn't hard to imagine that with his fitness and determination he might have excelled at it.
