    A "feature length" documentary, entitled THE GENERAL'S BROTHER, the story of Samuel Washington, the younger brother of General George Washington, has been created relating the many capacities in which Samuel Washington participated as a patriot during the Revolution only to die weeks before the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown. ​ This documentary, produced by Bob Asbury, reveals much about the childhood and adolescent years of General Washington and brother Samuel. Bob Asbury is a descendant of Samuel Washington through John T. A. Washington and Elizabeth Conrad Bedinger. The video can be accessed at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhEXeFbnUoU.
