In my young adult adventure series, Central Park Story, Christopher Middleton, the main character, introduces some revolutionary ideas into his new school.

Picking up on the idea, his clothes-minded girlfriend decides to design a uniform that he can wear. Naturally, she turns to General George Washington for inspiration.

As you can see from the picture on the right, Washington’s uniform is a far cry from the uniforms of revolutionaries like Lenin or Mao!
