George Washington was the general of the continental (colonial) army.He fought hard and encouraged the militia when they were down.At the Winter of Valley Forge he lost a lot of soldiers, but that didn't stop him.He was a good general in my opinion.And after the war he became the first president of the United States.
The Winter of Valley Forge
The Winter of Valley Forge was a hard time for the colonists.Many died of starving and freezing.The only thing they could eat until the French helped the colonists was this so called "cake" was made out of flour and water.And the most painful part,when you got surgery in those times,they couldn't get them into a deep enough sleep so they had to stay awake through the surgery.OUCH!That'd hurt!
