George Washington Survey — Perhaps the Most Remarkable Example of any Survey Ever Accomplished by George Washington is Illustrated above. The Mature Script Concerning the Full Page Handwritten Manuscript is actually that of the
17 Year Old, to be, Father of our Country. Not only has Washington Signed in Full
at the bottom right hand corner (see the right picture for close up of the 17 Year Old Washington signature); but he also Sketched the Full Survey at the very top of
Broad Run of Occoquan; which is not more than 20 miles from Mount Vernon.
