Oh my god. Ben's children and grandkids learning about how they became Washingtons. Please consider Ben telling George II all about his great-uncle Samuel?
He wants George II to know about the real Samuel. The one who assured him he’d die a Tallmadge. And in many ways he was correct. Ben didn’t stop being a Tallmadge after marriage, he just wore different colors and titles.
He wants to keep Sam’s spirit alive, and share all their good times. Not reduce him to a few lines in a textbook.
