Remembering George Washington by Nick Follett
In his early years, Washington was a surveyor of land for the British Colonies. He was tasked with surveying the Ohio River Valley, which would turn into Ohio and Kentucky.
Can't wait to tell the colonists about this place!
We will take the fort for the king!
In 1753, Washington took command of the Virgina Militia, and led them to Ft. Dequense. Washington's men took the French fort, and claimed it for the British. It's one of Washington's greatest pre-Revolution sucesses.
Washington was chosen to lead the first continetal army in their fight against the British Empire. Under his command, the army won key battles such as Trenton and Yorktown. Also under Washington's command, the continental army survived the harsh winter at Valley Forge. It's because of his leadership during the Revolutionary war that our nation exists today.
After the Articles of Confederation nearly led to the downfall of the US, many politicians felt a revision was necessary. They held the Constitutional Convention, and choose George Washington to preside over it. He didn't talk much or give his opinion on a lot of the ideas brought to him, with the hope of the conventioneers figuring it out themselves. In the end, they did, and the Constitution was created.
Don't they realize there's such a simple solution to this?
Finally, in the wanning years of his life, Washington was unamiously voted President of the United States. During his presidency, he set many standards for future presidents to follow, many of which have. Washington kickstarted our revised government. and helped the US become what it is today.
