gorge washingtons story of perseverance against the British empire.

He was a noble man and the commander and chief of the continental army during the american revolution. . He was the general of america and was at war with the British. At the time the British had the best economy and the best military, it was like a super power at it's time. If he won the war the can make america his own country. His army was low on supplies and were inadequate when having to battle the British redcoat musketeers. like the first battle when the redcoats crushed the minutemen. all of the minutemen were killed and not a single redcoat was killed and only one of them was slightly hurt like he just stubbed his toe. He used the newly introduced gorilla warfare tactic which was very effective because back in time the wars were that everyone stands in a strait line and constantly fires and hopes not to die. but gorilla warfare was that every one moves around and swarmed them. They used whatever they can to provide for their military. Because of luck and good leadership they were able to prevail and win the war and become their own country. So George Washington became the first president.

He made a lot of games and was selling fun passes and you can buy them and play games for prizes. But he had to make the games in his dads shop and it was rare for a costumer to come.
