Men such as Washington and Franklin reigned as icons in the American psyche even before the Virginia general had orchestrated Cornwallis’s defeat in 1781. The ensuing years only added to their reputations for virtue and self-sacriﬁce, enveloping them in an aura of myth and fable. Toasts to Washington were split between those extolling his military prowess and those praising his civic virtue. ” Holiday speakers presented Washington to their audiences as the embodiment of the ideal American, a ﬁgure worthy of imitation but beyond the reach of mere mortals.
As the heat of the day dissipated into twilight, company oﬃcers and local dignitaries rose from their chairs and, through a series of toasts, reminded the audience of the reason for gathering. Following the last toast—usually oﬀered to the “American Fair,” a reference to wives and sweethearts—the assemblage marched back to town; and after twenty or so toasts, the evening parade undoubtedly displayed less precision than the morning’s march. Residents then peacefully “retired to their respective abodes,” reassured by the military prowess of their neighbors.
