George Washington’s Rules of Civility
During this season of New Years and resolutions, we recommend that you take some time with your family to enjoy George Washington’s Rules of Civility & Decent Behaviour In Company and Conversation, which he transcribed as a school boy’s exercise sometime before the age of 16. You can read these inspiring rules of good manners on the Colonial Williamsburg Website. Perhaps you have a family member who would enjoy copying these rules, creating a display for them, or teaching the family about them. Enjoy!
