George Washington Crossing the Delaware with a Gift Bag of Socks for His Mom
Most historians would probably disagree with me on this, but George Washington’s crossing of the Delaware River depicted in a famous painting (I think it was actually a paint-by-number!) was not about getting to the other side – New Jersey – to attack a group of Hessian soldiers during the Revolutionary War in 1776. No, he was actually trying to get across the river to surprise his mom with a gift bag from SammySocks Etc.
This has just now come to light thanks to a recently discovered first draft of the painting (paint-by-number?) by the artist that has been hidden away in the back of a pizza shop in Trenton, New Jersey. As you can plainly see in this photograph of the recently discovered painting, George is holding a gift bag from SammySocks Etc. for his mom. It is a Love Socks Gift Bag for Women!
What a great guy! He was not only a brilliant military strategist, a fantastic leader, and someone who could pull off wearing a wig, but he was a dutiful son who loved his mom so much that during a war he took the time to make sure that he got his mom a great gift for the holidays.
