George Washington's drinking habits were legendary. The amount of alcohol on his expense account during the war is staggering.
When the war was over Washington submitted a bill for his "expenses", $449,261 in in 1780 dollars. Or roughly $4,250,000.00 in todays dollars.
He routinely bought Madeira by the hogshead. And we paid for a lot of hogsheads.
