    • This is true, but somewhat misleading. The party was celebrating both Washington's election as the first president AND the signing of the Constitution. The guests included soldiers, politicians, personal friends and family. The bill was 89 pounds and 4 shillings, or 17,253 dollars (2018).

    • Madera is about 5 glasses per bottle. Claret is about also 5 glasses per bottle. Whiskey is 15 shots per bottle. Porter's is about ten per bottle. Hard cider assuming it's like a beer bottle. Beer is beer. Bowls of punch, about 25 cups. So about 15 drinks per person of hard alcohol. Beer and wine.

    • To the people saying “that’s only 3 drinks a person” it said BOTTLES, not drinks. So an average of 3 BOTTLES per person. Try drinking one whole bottle of whiskey and see if you feel it.
