Rock Star? Quarterback? Making Over George Washington





It turns out that George Washington was one good-looking guy. The image of Washington as a young man is slowly becoming clearer, and it is not what first comes to mind when people think of the "father of our country." Instead of a white-haired old man, think of a rangy hunk who looks like a quarterback.

Researchers working to change perceptions of Washington by re-creating his image at earlier times in his life have produced three-dimensional computer images of what he must have looked like at ages 19, 45 and 57, using a combination of forensic science, anthropology, computer graphics and a lot of detective work.
