George Washington Visits Local School

After traveling days on a horse and buggy, a George Washington impersonator finally arrived at Maud Johnson Elementary School all the way from Virginia to give students a first hand look at what is was like to be the first American President.

The historical event comes after a drawing was won by Illinois history teacher of the year Theresa Bartsch, she and other Rockford teachers attended a presentation last night for new history text books.
