By TERI JOHNSON Staff Writer George Washington slept here. You've seen those words on signs, brochures and billboards and heard them on commercials. The phrase has been repeated so many times that you probably wonder if our Founding Father ever was awake. Washington wore many hats - surveyor, Virginia planter, commander in chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolution, first president of the United States, and husband of Martha, to name a few. He was born Feb. 22, 1732, in Westmoreland County, Va. This year we celebrate his birthday and that of Abraham Lincoln Monday, Feb. 17. Washington was a traveling man who sometimes was on the road for weeks at a time.
