My favorite story started in the Exchange. After Washington's visit, the City Councilmen commissioned John Trumbull to paint a portrait of Washington to commemorate the visit. Trumbull painted a seven-foot royal portrait of Washington but, much to the Councillors dismay, had Washington posed in front of the city of Trenton, NJ. Councillors refused to pay Trumbull for the portrait, so Washington stood for a second portrait, this time featuring Charleston in the background. Trumbull got his revenge on the Councillors, however, by inserting a laughing horse behind the President, with the horse's butt prominent and its tail strategically raised over the city and its council in direct line of fire! We had to go to city hall to see the original of this caustic portrait.
