George Washington's Vision

We're sure many of you have heard of George Washington's vision at Valley Forge in the Winter of 1777. You can Google it and receive many accounts of it. HOWEVER, we have the only TRUE account of his vision and it goes like this .....

George was sitting and writing at his desk, with instructions not to be disturbed. when a woman appeared from a mist and began to speak ,,, well, we will let George take it from here.

"Presently I heard a voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn,' while at the same time my visitor extended her arm eastwardly. I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon a strange scene. I was able to see in one dimension all of the Estate Sales to be held the week of our independence in the year 2013. Before me lay spread out in one vast plain were lawn mowers and snow blowers, Vintage bottles, like the one I was presently drinking from, old hats, chairs and assorted furniture. I even saw an unsmoked joint from Woodstock. As I lay my quill down and wiped my brow I heard `Son of the Republic' in the same mysterious voice as before, `look and learn,'

At that moment I beheld droves of future Americans exercising their freedoms by carrying boxes and baskets full of items to their SUV's and Minivans. Everything imaginable like the Boston Rocker at Hutchison's sale to the Colonial Dinning room at Jaye's Sunday sale. "The scene instantly began to fade and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing but the rising, curling vapor I at first beheld. This also disappearing, I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor, who, in the same voice I had heard before, said, `Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted: There will be 13 professional and two family sales, set forth on July 6th in the year of our lord 2013. With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been shown to me the birth, progress and destiny of the United States."
