Item No. CL4844JR Category


Wonderful carte view of General George Washington’s tomb. George Washington died in his bedchamber at Mount Vernon on December 14, 1799. His last will outlined his desire to be buried at his home at Mount Vernon. Washington additionally made provisions for a new brick tomb to be constructed after his death, which would replace the original yet quickly deteriorating family burial vault. In 1831, Washington’s body was transferred to the new tomb, along with the remains of Martha Washington and other family members. You can clearly read the plaque above the tomb entrance in this view which reads “Within this enclosure rest the remains of Genl. George Washington”. Superb carte in excellent shape! No back mark.
