Many Americans believed that the young George Washington said it since Washington was known for his honesty. Unfortunately, the young Washington didn’t say it. Historians agree that Mason Weems just constructed the story to add flavor to Washington’s childhood life. As they say, many biographies have a seasoning of fiction!
