Mapping the Life of George Washington

George Washington spent a lot of time in Washington DC. I guess he liked the name.1

Washington's World is a biographical map of George Washington's life created by the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association (Mount Vernon being Washington's plantation home). The map allows you to explore the places which Washington visited in his life, from his birth in Westmoreland County, Virginia to his death at Mount Vernon.

The map includes the option to display various journeys undertaken by Washington during his life, including, his presidential tours and his trip to Barbados. The map also includes a timeline, which allows you to explore the plotted locations by date. If you select a location on the map you can view details about the chosen location in the map sidebar.

1. Yes, I know.
