Lawn Jockeys

During the Revolutionary War, Jocko Graves, the 12 year old son of a free black man, wanted to cross the Delaware River with George Washington and fight. Too young to join, Jocko volunteered to keep Washingotn's horses ready for when he returned. Jocko held on to the reins all night and froze to death. Washington had the first lawn jockey constructed for Mount Vernon to commemorate Jocko's sacrifice.
