GEORGE WASHINGTON

George WashigtonGeorge Washington is much-admired person in many respects.As first president of United States,he set the course upon which current three-branch system of federal government is based.George Washington is perhaps one person who can most claim title of Founding Father.

George Washington was born on February 22, 1732 in Virginia. During his youth, British Empire ruled the 13 colonies. Despite what you might assume, he was hardly revolutionary and his stated goal was to become officer in British Army! Obviously, that goal never came to fruition.

In 1775, colonies formed a Continental Congress to address conflict with the British. George Washington was elected Commander of all colonial forces. War had already broken out in Massachusetts.

Facing total defeat and lack of money, George Washington did amazing thing. He rallied his ragtag colonial forces and paid their wages out of his own finances. By late December of 1776, the colonial forces were starting to turn the tide against the British. After more victories in 1777, the French offered their support. It took few years to arrive, but Washington was eventually able to completely defeat the British.In 1781, the British surrendered much of east coast. In 1783, treaty was signed granting colonies their independence. On February 4, 1789, George Washington was elected President.in 1799, he died of pneumonia on his Virginia plantation.
