            George Washington (1732-1799)

He was the first President of the United States. He became President in 1789, eight years after the American War of Independence.

His Early life. George was born in Virginia. His family owned a big farm and had slaves. George didn’t have much education. During his life he had three jobs: he was a farmer, a soldier, and a politician. He loved the life of a farmer. He grew tobacco and owned horses. He worked hard but he also liked dancing and going to the theatre. In 1759 he married a widow called Martha Vustis. They were happy together, but didn’t have any children.

His later life. He was Commander-in-Chief of the Army and fought the British in the War of Independence. When the war ended in 1781 he was happy to go back to the farm, but his country wanted him to be President. Finally, in 1789, he   became President, and gave his name to the new capital City. He started the building of the White House, but he never lived in it. By 1797 he was tired of politics. He went back to his farm and died there two years later.
