乔治华盛顿逾17991214日在弗农山庄 (Mount Vernon) 家中去世

在独立战争之后,乔治华盛顿最想作的事情就是到弗吉尼亚州当个谦和的农夫。但是他对国家的责任感却让他在1789年时成为美国的第一任总统。总的说来,他花了50年的岁月为国家服务。最后,在17991214日的晚上10点,华盛顿在弗农山庄自宅里去世。虽然他当谦和农夫的时光相当短暂,但是他却在美国历史与文化上留下了一个令人赞叹的标记。


After the Revolutionary War, George Washington more than anything, hoped to live as a gentleman farmer in Virginia. But his sense of duty to his country was so great that instead he went on to serve his country as the first president of the United States in 1789. All in all, he spent 50 years in public service. Finally, at 10 p.m. on December 14, 1799, Washington died at his Mount Vernon home. His time was brief as a gentleman farmer. But he did leave an astounding mark on American history and culture.
