The First President of United States of America(II)

Life of George Washington

22nd February, 1732, George Washington was born at Wakefield on their Popes Creek Estate in the Colony of Virginia. He is the son of a wealthy plantation owner. His father, Augustine Washington, died at the age of 11, leaving seven children including George Washington, and his wife, Mary Ball Washington. Young Washington accepted education equivalent to primary school. He failed to learn classical courses. Under his mother’s strict discipline, he mastered land survey, livestock raising and other technologies, and learned to use his skills to make money.

In 1751, at the age of 19, he traveled abroad for the only time in his life. Unfortunately, he was infected with smallpox, but he was immune to it. Next year, Washington inherited another considerable fortune including the brother’s Vernon hills.galvanized square tubing

In 1753, at the age of 22, Washington inadvertently became one of the fuses of the French and Indian War. This year, the French began to build many fortresses in the Ohio Country, which was then part of the territory of Virginia, as part of their strategy. The French, with the support of the local aborigines, tried to prevent the England from continuing to expand westward their colonies in the American state and from blocking British troops in the colonies. The governor of Virginia was Robert Dinwiddie, and George Washington, then a major, delivered an ultimatum to the French commander asking the French to leave. Washington revealed the process to local newspapers, and he became legendary. However the French refused to evacuate, so Britain needs further action.

Well, I will continue to narrative about history of George Washington for the next post.
