This boy is George Washington, the first President of the United States. The United States was established by the people who immigrated from England and Europe and settled in America where Indians had already been living. George was born in February 1732. When George was 16 years old, he worked as a surveying engineer for Mr. Fairfax. The United States was under the control of the French and British military. A British military officer decided to send a message to the French military to say a war should not break out. The French military joined forces with American Indians and started the war. The British lost the war, although it received assistance from its mainland the United Kingdom in fighting the enemy. "We cannot hand over Virginia to France. Let's defend it." The people of Virginia had Washington as their commander and fought against France. Washington led his army and fought away the French military. Now peace seemed to have come to the United States, but this time the British military behaved high-handedly toward them. The British military imposed heavy taxes on goods to collect various taxes from the Americans. The United States sent a letter to the United Kingdom and requested it to stop its high-handedness toward Americans. At last the US people fought the British military under the command of General Washington in order to gain independence Many Americans threw away their shovels and hoes but picked up their weapons to participate in the war. One day Washington went to Sergeant Jack who were standing guard and delivered him a letter from his hometown. "I will stand guard in place of you. Read this letter and write a reply to your parents." The war lasted for 8 years, and the British military finally surrendered to the United States. After the war, the United States selected Washington as its first president. The United States was gradually establishing itself as a country while Washington was serving as its president. Washington worked in the fields in his hometown until he died at the age of 67 in December, 1799. He lived in accordance with this belief. 'You must always try to keep your remarks and acts upright in order not to leave any shame behind you.'
