An illustration of a sailboat, believed to be 270 years old and the handiwork of a 10-year-old George Washington, might provide priceless insight into the childhood of America’s first president. If genuine, the sketch would be the earliest known document produced by Washington and immensely valuable both financially and historically.

When you can't write, makes ice cream! From the Library of Congress: "A passionate gourmet, Jefferson acquired a stock of standard French recipes for sauces, fruit tarts, French-fried potatoes, blood sausages, pigs' feet, rabbit, pigeons, and various other dishes. Among the most popular of these recipes at Monticello was this one for vanilla ice cream--written by Jefferson, with his own recipe for Savoy cookies to accompany the dessert on the back."
Abraham Lincoln's ice cream recipe, written in his own handwriting.
