George Washington, Ace of Hearts
1st President of the United States, 1789—1797
A tall man of quiet strength, a surveyor, general and wealthy land owner, Washington was always fabulously dressed. He was the first and only President unanimously elected. It is quite possible that overzealous doctors desperate to save the “Father of the United States” from a sore throat may have bled and blistered him into a premature grave.
