Story of George Washington.
George Washington was born in
Westmoreland County, Virginia on
Feb. 22, 1732. His father's name
was Augustine and his mother's
name was Mary. He was the old
e s t brother. They lived on a
farm planted with tobacco and
had barns, storehouses and sheds
so their farm looked like a village.
His playmates were horses, catties
and dogs. H e sometimes went
fishing, swimming and every day
rode on his pony called, "Hero."
People said that he was always
truthful, obidient and not afraid of
anything. When he was eleven
years old his father died, so his
mother was busy every day teach
ing her children how to read and
write and took care of the sick
When George was fourteen years
old he made up his mind to be a
sailor. When the day came for
him to start his mother felt badly
and refused him.
Soon after this he studied hard
to be a surveyor. He surveyed
land for Lord Fairfax. While he
was surveying h e became very
strong and learned the habits of
The governor of Virginia want
ed to send a letter to the French
General asking them to leave the
Mississippi and Ohio valleys. He
needed a brave man so he choose
Washington to carry that message.
It was six hundred miles from
Virginia and was a hard trip be
cause these were Indians on the
way. War began between Eng
land and France.
Washington won many battles
so Congress thanked h i in and
praised him because, he was brave.
In the year 1758 his brother
died in Mount Vernon. Wash
ington went to Mount Vernon and
lived on his brother's farm. After
awhile he married Mrs. Martha
Custis who was a widow. He
took care of the large farms and
slaves for fifteen years.
King George III. the king of
England and rules of the Thirteen
Colonies made unwise laws for
badding the colonies to trade with
any other country except England,
They could not build factories
and were made to pay heavy taxes.
The colonists said that they would
not pay those unjust taxes unless
they had representatives in Par
liament. They petitioned the
king not to treat them cruel. The
king paid no attention but sent
over more soldiers. The people of
the United States became very
angry because the king was taking
away all the liberties that are so
dear to men.
The revolutionary war begun in
the year 1775. A battle was
fought at Lexington between some
Colonists and British soldiers,
who were on the wav to conquer
to destroy the stores belonging to
the Coionists. This was the first
battle of the revolution.
Washington was appointed
commander in chief and said that
he would serve and do the best
that he could for his country.
They fought for seven years and
at last won their independence.
The States had won their indepen
dence but they were not united bo
the people met at Philadelphia
where thev framed a constitution
by which the country must have a
president, Every one voted for
Washington and he was the first
president of the United States.
He served four years and was re
elected for four more. After serv
ing eight years he went back to
Mount Vernon and lived quietly
on his farm. He died of a severe
cold on December 14, 1799. A
speaker in congress said that he
was, first in war, first in peace,
first in the hearts of his country

ways tells the truth."
Now everybody knows three
things about him, that he always
told the truth, that he never fear
ed anything and he always loved
and minded his parents.
About this time the French war

In a little while the French war
broked out and England sent an
army over to America to defend
the colonies. They had a battle
with the French, and the English
succeed in driving the French
back to their own territories.
