In conjunction with the exhibit Discover the Real George Washington at the National Constitution Center this summer, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania hosted a George Washington Document Display.  Item on display included Washington's pocket diary, Martha Washington's cookbook, the diary of Washington's private secretary, Tobias Lear, who chronicled Washington's last days and death, and even a lock of Washington's hair!
