shouted the sheriff Theyre about ready to roll The crowd on the shore moved back, but not enough to suit the sheriff Do you want to be killed he shouted Move back The sheriff walked toward the crowd to push some of the people back He pointed toward the hogsheads, or barrels, of tobacco ready to come rolling down the hill Move back the sheriff shouted to the people again Move back This time they obeyed They knew the danger, for they came to Augustine Washingtons plantation every year on Loading Day Many came from the little town of Fredericksburg, across the Rappahannock River Others came from plantations round about It was a sight to seethose tobacco hogsheads rolling down the steep bank It was exciting, too Sometimes a barrel would go wild It would get loose from its ropes and go crashing down like a great monster Faster and faster Wilder and wilder And then with a great splash it would plunge into the deep river Field hands up on the bank had placed strong ropes around a hogshead Now they were holding these ropesready to roll when their master gave the signal But Augustine Washington didnt give it He wasnt satisfied He examined the ropes again Any hogshead that went wild was a bad loss for him The barrels were packed with his tobacco, raised on his Virginia plantations They were to be loaded on the vessel waiting at his wharf and taken to England The tobacco would be sold there, and the Washington family would live this year on whatever money it brought No wonder Mr Washington examined the ropes carefully No wonder Mrs Washington watched closely a little distance away A little boy watched with hera slender, handsome boy, tall for his seven years His hair was a reddish light brown His eyes were gray blue and very keen He was watching now as closely as his mother Father wont let them roll, he said Whats the matter, Mother Hes telling the workers something, George Hes very careful Everything has to be exactly right Oh I see what it is cried George He told them to put on their leather gloves Hes afraid the ropes will cut their hands, said Mrs Washington Look cried George a moment later Father is lifting his hand Ready shouted Mr Washington Roll Move back shouted the sheriff Move back Shes coming George almost held his breath until the hogshead was down the bank, across the wharf and aboard the ship He was as anxious as his parents And no one was happier than he when the last cask was on the ship He hadnt had new boots last winter Too much tobacco had been lost, both in the field and in the river But this year everything was just right There was no bad tobacco, and not a barrel had been lost Now I know Ill get new boots, he told his little sister Betty Mother said I could have brass tips, too Im going to have new shoes, said Betty And Im going to have brass tips if you do BOATS PASSING BY There were boats on the Rappahannock all day long rowboats, sailboats, sloops, brigs, brigantines, barges Sometimes there was a sailing vessel from England There were often trading vessels from Boston and New York All these boats passed by Ferry Farm, and the younger Washington children watched them from the bank There was George, now seven and one half years old There was Betty, one and one half years younger And there were the still younger boys, Samuel, John, and Charles The older boys, Lawrence and Austin, were away at school in England They were the sons of Augustine Washington and his first wife The younger of these two sons had been named for his father but was called Austin George had been born on February 22, 1732 At that time the Washingtons were living on their Wakefield Plantation This plantation was near the Potomac River Later, when George was six years old, they had moved to their farm on the Rappahannock River This plantation had three names Pine Grove Farm, Cherry Tree Farm, and Ferry Farm Most persons called it Ferry Farm, because the ferry to Fredericksburg was under its banks, and also because Mr Washington owned the ferry The passengers were mostly planters from distant plantations They rode horseback to the river Some left their horses at Ferry Farm until they returned Others took their horses with them So sometimes the ferryman rowed a skiff and sometimes a barge Sometimes he ferried people, sometimes horses, mules, and cattle But he was always dressed the samehigh boots, blue trousers, red flannel shirt, and blue cap George said he looked like a king Betty and the little boys thought he was a king, and they were always delighted when he waved at them Just now he had waved his cap He never did that before, said George They were all so excited about this they almost failed to see a pretty sloop that now came sailing by Oh Theres Aunt Mildreds sloop cried George Shes waving at us Then the children waved and waved Their Aunt Mildred Washington Willis was their fathers sister and lived in Fredericksburg Soon after came the Travers brig And there was Aunt Hannah Ball Travers waving to them They waved back as long as they could see her Presently, the Seldens sailboat came skimming along Theres Aunt Mary at the rudder said George Shes waving Wavequick before shes gone Where are they all going asked Samuel Theyre out making calls, said George Its around ten oclock, and thats the time they call in the mornings Mother went calling, too, said Betty But she went on horseback Shed rather ride a horse if the roads are good, said George Then came a beautiful barge rowed by eight strong boatmen George knew all about that, too It belongs to Mr Fitzhugh, he said Theres Mrs Fitzhugh sitting up in front Her maid is holding a parasol over her head Can you see her I can, said Betty Is she our aunt I dont know, said George She might be Shes waving just like an aunt, said Betty So they all waved to her till their arms were tired It had been a busy morning But then every day was a busy day with them, for boats were always passing by And there was always the ferry to watch, and the ferryman who looked like a king One day George made up his mind Father, he said, Im going to be a ferryman when I grow up And Im going to wear blue trousers and a red flannel shirt and a blue cap Well, son, well see, said Mr Washington gravely Well see.Get to know George Washington as a kid and discover what made him the ultimate all star in American history.George
