At the age of 10, George's dad died and George was taken in by his uncle. His uncle had a 1,500 volume library in his house, and at a young age, George was interested in local affairs.
Your turn George.
George Mason drafted the Declaration of Independence.
I disagree to the powers of the new government!
He led the Patriots in the Revolutionary war with George Washington.
Why don't you like the the new powers to the government
George Mason drafted the state constitution while he was a leader for the Patriots.
George Mason objected to the powers of the new government, he even said "I would sooner chop off my right hand then put it to the constitution as it now stands."
Because George Mason objected to the powers of the new goverment, George was becoming more and more irrelevant because he didnt sign the constitution. George's concerns about people were put to rest when the bill of rights became valid.
