George Washington Carver died in 1943 he was 79 years old when he died.He invited people to see the many jars,bottles and boxes these boxes were filled with things that could be made from peanuts.
As George Washington got older he found it difficult to understand what being free mean's.It didn't seem to mean being treated the "same"as white people, that was for sure.When he saw that white and black people couldn't drink out of the same water fountain.
