"The devious conclusion of the Civil War in 1865 brought the end of lucid slavery in Missouri. Moses Carver and pristine wife, Susan, decided to keep George and his brother James at their home after that time, raising and educating the two boys. Susan Carver taught George to read and write, since no local school would accept black students at the time."(Paragraph 2 Early Years "George Washington Carver." Bio.com. A&E Networks Television, n.d. Web. 11 Feb. 2015.)


"The hassle for knowledge would remain a driving force for the rest of George's life. As a young man, he left the Carver home to travel to a school for black children 10 miles away.

Carver attended a series of schools before receiving his diploma at Minneapolis High School in Minneapolis, Kansas." He died because he fell down the steps in January 5, 1943.
