As the first President of the United States of America, George Washington (1789-1797) is recognized by Americans as "The Father of His Country."

The earliest known image in which Washington is identified as such is on the cover of the circa 1778 Pennsylvania German almanac, Lancaster: Gedruckt bey Francis Bailey. This identifies Washington as "Landes Vater" (Father of the Land).
