George Washington was a Soldier, Hero, President, and Sailor.  He was one of U.S. great military masterminds which helped lead the U.S. to win the revolutionary war against the British.  George Washington kept a journal of his journeys and battles through which we see the dangers and hardships he underwent.  He started his military career in 1753 where he was ordered to warn Fort LeBoeuf’s French commander to cease encroaching upon British-claimed territory.  He was said to handle things with natural instincts. George Washington’s skills were called once again to lead the American forces during the war for independence because of his experience and ability to handle harsh weather conditions which made him an incredible asset.

George Washington is a hero because in his time, America was young and during a war for independence, he stepped up to be the leader that the Americans needed to defeat the British.  He was actually known not to like war much but he had a skill for it.  He led the Americans to win the revolutionary war by winning battles and increasing morale when possible.  In the end his military logic, pride, experience,  victories, and leadership were all recognized which led to his importance in history and becoming the first president of the United States.

 

“I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.” – George Washington
