Between 1753, when he was commissioned as a major of Virginia militia, and 1775, when the second Continental Congress named him Commander-in-Chief of all colonial military forces, George Washington rose from anonymity as a minor landowner and surveyor to become America's first national hero. With little military training he led the thirteen fledgling colonies through six years of grueling war against formidable British forces, steered the proceedings of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, and served two terms as the first president of the United States. His accomplishments were so stunning and he was so revered that by the end of the war some of his generals urged him to install himself as king, an idea he looked upon with abhorrence, calling the very thought painful. Nor would he consider standing for a third term as president. Download and start listening now!

    " I really enjoyed this book. This book is an easy read for anyone who wants to learn more about the Father of our Country. A short book on a great man. Mr. Crutchfield has done a wonderful job in presenting the life of General Washington in an easy to read format that any reader of any age can enjoy. "
