Overview

George Washington's Rules of Civility and Decent Behavior in Company and Conversation is a list of 110 rules copied by our nation's first President when he was a teenager in 1745. They were discovered in his manuscripts partly gnawed away by mice at his Mt. Vernon home.

The rules are a list of maxims that taught modesty, respect and a heightened consideration for others to young minds who later led our nation in revolution.

The moral character of our country's founders helped shape a nation that strives through its leaders to protect inalienable rights of its people. These rules and the patriots they helped shape remind us that we need civility and leaders of moral character if a civil society is to avoid the consequences of having neither.
