George Washington

George Washington is best known as the ?Father of our Country.? He cared for this
country much like a parent would care for a child. During his presidency, he solved
many noteworthy problems. His achievements led to a democratic, wonderful
country we like to call The United States of America. Although he?s not thought of
as glamorous, George Washington is looked upon with the utmost respect and awe
by all countries of the world. George Washington was born in Westmoreland
County, Virginia on February 22, 1732. He was the oldest son of a Virginia farmer.
Washington received most of his education at home. When he was 17 he was
appointed surveyor of Culpeper County, Virginia. In 1752 Washington inherited
Mount Vernon, in Fairfax County. The same year he was appointed adjutant of the
southern district of Virginia, a full-time salaried appointment, carrying the rank of
major. He wanted to eventually secure a commission in the regular British army. In
1753, Virginia was alarmed when a French expedition from Canada established
posts on the headwaters of the Ohio River. Conflict over this area eventually
erupted into the French and Indian War, in which Washington played a major
military role that established his reputation as a commander. In the fall of 1758 the
French were defeated. In 1759
