Abstract:

George Washington is unmistakably America s most famous Founding Father. He led the Continental Army during the American Revolution and later served as America s first president. But Washington s life is full of fun facts that many still don t know. From his relationships with other Founding Fathers to his early history as a general, there s much to discuss about one of America s most famous citizens. This book separates the myths from fact, delving into his famous cherry tree story and other commonly held beliefs about this American icon that many mistake as fact.
