George’s Hair

30-george-washington-grangerI’ve been reading about George Washington’s hair.

It wasn’t a wig. His hair was real and styled much like the British military officers of the day.

He wore his own hair which was light brown in color, tied in a queue and powdered. The queue was sometimes worn in a small black silk bag.”

Fashions are peculiar, coming and going like the wind. It’s fun to learn about what how my ancestors looked and acted.
