Portraits of Patriots Project

William Sanders has made it his mission to put George Washington’s portrait back into America’s schools. Out of his desire to return important history to the classroom, The Portraits of Patriots Project was born.  George Washington’s portrait once hung in every school as mandated by Congress in 1932. As schools were renovated or closed down and new schools were built, the portraits were taken down and never replaced…until now. To learn more about this project click here.
