WASHINGTON ARTIFACT GOES ON DISPLAY

Charles Wilson Peale’s portrait of Washington commemorating the victory at Princeton.

(FoxNews) – The storied blue sash worn by George Washington (above) during
the Revolutionary War has gone on display at Philadelphia’s Museum of the
American Revolution. The sash, on loan from Harvard’s Peabody Museum of
Ethnography and Archaeology, was rediscovered several years ago by Dr.
Philip Mead, chief historian and director of curatorial affairs at the Museum of
the American Revolution. Mead found the artifact at the Peabody Museum,
where it had essentially been hidden in plain sight for decades. He spent years
studying the sash before concluding that it was indeed the one worn by
Washington.

The sash (below) which is on display until Oct. 9, is featured with a 1776 portrait
of Washington by Philadelphia artist Charles Willson Peale, which depicts him
wearing the sash. The portrait is on loan from the Brooklyn Museum.
