George Washington is the one I give title to in this book since he was a brave leader along with many in the the world in his life time but he was also the first President of the United States..He helped establish America with his Army and leaders John Adams and Thomas Jefferson who wrote laws of the land and with French allies Admiral Francis Joseph Paul de Grasse and Marquis de lafayette and their Armies who helped win the American Revolution. Along with American traders, farmers and citizens who all wanted to retain their own land and what they all believed to be a fair government. In this book are pictures from the State of Pennsylvania and the City of Philadelphia and outside of the City of Independence where American Soldiers had battles and retained forts. This book provides the answers to questions you may have about the establishment and history of the United States and George Washington's life and careers. This book is a tribute to the American Revolution Patriots, Patriots of today and those who continue to honor the United States of America.
Few books about George Washington treat exclusively his western interests and activities. As these interests were extensive and admittedly determining factors in his career as a soldier, the present volume offers a much needed picture of this phase of Washington's life. The author offers substantial evidence to refute the charges that Washington's interests were predominantly selfish, because of his large holdings in the West, and calls to mind that in statesmanship Washington is seen at his best in his efforts to unite the East and West.
