George Washington’s Visions for America
My source: This story was originally shared to me by Rik E Shay of the Xirtus Tartary and The Watchmen Discord Servers.
I could record an entire podcast soapboxing about my opinions on perpetual war and what it’s doing to not only the world but to America’s soul, but I don’t think anyone would listen to it, including yours truly, once I hit publish on such pointless mental [redacted], so I will spare us all. Nonetheless, the current headlines and the ill portent of the subsequent onslaught of WWIII memes on instagram today together struck a chord in my mind as I prepared to share a, I guess we can call it a Prophecy- attributed to none other than the Foundingest of Fathers, known by everyone starting just now as The Neverliar, The Spirit of Virginia, the Mahogany Masticator, and The Delaware River Decamper! Indeed, our subject today is none other than the heavyweight champion of US Presidents, Mister George-No-Middle-Name-Washington himself.
The vision that I am speaking of is one that came to Washington during the historic winter of 1777 while in “Winter Quarters” at Valley Forge with his army of Revolutionary soldiers. This was the same winter in which thousands of American volunteers, underpaid and underfed even at that early stage of the conflict- perished of cold and disease while trying to endure one of the worst winters on record since the peak of the Little Ice Age of the 16th and 17th Centuries. Now, I must hasten to qualify the assertion that the visions were one hundred percent for sure that of the then General of the Continental Army.- this vision is attributed to George Washington, but was not heard of before the time of it’s disclosure in 1859 by a then 99 year old Random Old Soldier named Anthony Sherman. Sherman was supposedly there in ‘77 for that bitter winter, one in which it was recounted many times that Washington would “Go to the thicket to pray”. The Old Soldier would recount his story before he perished, that the listener may record Washington’s Vision, which included a sweeping picture of the young nation’s future, marked by three terrible perils. Let’s turn to the story, first widely published in 1880, 29 years after that fateful encounter with the Old Soldier by William Bradshaw, in The National Tribune..
