George Washington

1st President of the United States

Before Presidency

Before being a president, I was born in 1732 in Westmoreland County, Virginia. I had one job before presidency, which was a surveyor. I had education in a school kept by Rev. I eventually fought his first battle against the French in April 1753. I soon fought in the American Revolution as the commander in-chief of the continental army. After that I was concerned about the weaknesses of the government created by the Articles of Confederation which influenced me to become president. That an people noticed that I was a great leader who wanted to fight for the country.

After Becoming President

After I became president (which was my first job), I was a little nervous since I had a big responsibility but soon I adjusted to it. Before long, I put a tax on whiskey which colonists were so unhappy with that they formed the Whiskey Rebellion. I resolved this by sending many soldiers to threaten the colonists. Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton argued over how the government should be made and I soon left my presidency and warned that the government shouldn't separate into two groups.
