George Washington artifact found in Goodwill auction on display at museum


An unusual historical find was made at a Goodwill auction: A piece of fabric once a part of former President George Washington’s tent.

The artifact was discovered and purchased by historical collector Richard “Dana” Moore, who found the 6-inch piece of tent fabric at an online Goodwill auction. While he initially believed it “couldn’t be real,” Moore noticed the fabric did appear “authentically old,” according to Fox News Digital.

Moore said the fabric included a note, which read “a piece of George Washington’s tent, from the history building at Jamestown exposition 1907 property of John Burns, Dec. 23, 1907.”
