Commanding Presence:
George Washington stood tall when he accepted his commission to lead the Continental army on June 15, 1775 -- more than six feet, in fact. And he cut an impressive figure in his uniform: "His frame is padded with well-developed muscles, indicating great strength," wrote a friend in 1760. He has "rather long arms and legs," large hands and feet, a head that is "well-shaped, though not large" with "blue gray penetrating eyes," and "dark brown hair which he wears in a que [braid]." His "movements and gestures are graceful, his walk majestic, and he is a splendid horseman."
