My father was a farmer, so I never had a rich life when I was young.
My military career began in 1753 when I enlisted in the French-Indian war at the age of 21. I served in the war for 5 years.
After the French-Indian war, I was rejected by the British Army in 1758.
In 1775, I was appointed to Commander of the continental Army, and I held that position throughout the American Revolution.
I was unanimously elected as the First President of the United States in 1789.
