The Tomb Of Washington - Framed Print
Around the turn of the 20th century this photograph was taken of tomb guard Thomas Bushrod at the New Tomb. In his will, George Washington identified the location and provisions for the construction of this tomb. While Washington died in 1799, it would take decades for this tomb to be built. In 1831, George and Martha Washington and 25 family members were moved from the old tomb to this new one.
George Washington's tomb has welcomed presidents, prime ministers, generals, kings, princes, members of congress, and other dignitaries of all kinds. And as this combined image shows, we all can still visit the tomb and pay our respects to the Father of our Country. This photograph was produced by Mark Hersch and is copyrighted by George Washington's Mount Vernon.
