When I was a kid I loved to enter into contests. That's right whether it was playing a sport,
or using my brain I loved to compete, because I liked to win.
For example when I was a kid I entered into a pumpkin decorating contest for Halloween
and I won first place. I felt like I was on top of the world. There
is nothing like coming in first, and right now I want to talk about someone who was first
too. I want to talk about the first president of the United States named George Washington.
George washington was 1st the President of united states from 1789 to 1797. Not only
was he the President of the United States, but he was unanimously voted by everytone
there who had a vote to be the president, and that was the first time and only time
in history that would happen. Talking about presidents who hold office today
you may use the term republican, or democrat, but George Washington was neither one.
In history George was known as a federalist. Now talking about George Washingtons life
he was born on February 22, 1732 in Westmoreland County in Virginia.
He grew up there in colonial Virginia and his father was a landowner and a planter.
Now with George he had to deal with losing his father at an early age. When George Washington
was 11 years old his father died. Even though George's father had died, George
still had another male role model in his life. He went to live with his older brother named
Lawrence. Lawrence raised George and helped him to get an education in the basics of reading,
math. and more At the age of 16 George became what was called
a surveyor going out into new lands to take measurements and create maps.
Not long after that he became a part of the Virginia militia and got involved in wars
like the French and Indian War. Another cool thing about George Washington
is he finally got married. When settling down he married a widow by the name of Martha Dandridge
Custis. Although they never had kids he kept himself busy and became a parts of the Virginia
Legislature. During that time America was under British
rule. This is where George and the other land owners were tired of being treated bad by
the British and decided to wage war in the American Revolution.
In 1775 Washington became the general of the Continental Army. Although he lost many battles
in the end the British Army surrender in Yorktown on October 17, 1781.
Years later in 1789 George Washington was elected to be the first president of the United
States. He was also one of the key people that helped
to frame the Constitution of the United States of America as well.
After serving only two terms George Washington remembered what it was like to be under British
rule and decided to step down from office. He did not want people to look at him as a
king, and stepped away from his powerful seat. This began a tradition for many presidents
who only stayed in office for 8 years. The only president to sit longer than that was
Franklin Deleanor Roosevelt. After leaving office George Washington enjoyed
his life until December 14th 1799. that is when he died after suffering for weeks with
a cold and eventually passing from a throat infection. Well I hope you enjoyed hanging
out with me while I talked about the first President of the United States of America,
George Washington. Like I started off saying, being first is
always cool and there is nothing cooler than being known as the first President of the
United States of America.
