Rare Images of People from Early American History

Here we see George Washington as he appeared in 1775 and also as a young officer in the Virginia reserves. We find him sitting for a portrait... and see his life mask which shows us as he actually appeared at the age of 53. Doesn't exactly look like that face on the dollar bill, does it?

There's also John Hancock, whose signature adorns the U.S. Constitution as the first signer of that historic document. And John Marshall, who shaped American constitutional law, dressed in his judicial robes as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
