In conjunction with the exhibit Discover the Real George Washington at the National Constitution Center, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania hosted George Washington Document Display.  The items 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!  General Washington also visited and recounted some stories of his time in Philadelphia.
