275th Birthday of George Washington, Alexandria Parade

The Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts of Saint Louis Church of Mount Vernon carry an anno domini 1948 "Our Heritage" painting by Norman Rockwell in banner form showing George Washington kneeling in Prayer with a Boy Scout and a Cub Scout looking up to him.

The Scouts are joined in this 210th Anniversary George Washington Birthday Parade on the George Washington Birthday Federal Holiday by "The Spirit of George Washington LIVES!" who appeared in the parade for the first time ten years ago, and at that 200th Anniversary Parade won first place in the contest held that year for a "George Washington Look Alike".

Earlier in the day, the Aide to George Washington LIVES!, James Renwick Manship, Sr. was at Mount Vernon where he saw the beloved Martha Washington (alias Mary Wiseman), and has a video of her, the grounds of Mount Vernon, some of the speech by "President George W.", George W. Bush, and a video of the Old Tomb, the New Tomb possibly engineered by Lt. Robert E. Lee, U.S. Army, ending with the secret to the Life of George Washington.
