American Revolution Patriot - George Washington

George Washington

Born: 1732

Married Martha: 1759

Speech to Officers: 1783

Farewell to Nation: 1796

French and Indian War, 1753:In 1753, George Washington and a small group of men were sent into the Ohio River valley.His misson was to deliver a letter of protest to French officials, who refused the request to leave the territory.

Battle of Trenton, 1776:The effect of the battle of Trenton was out of all proportion to the numbers involved and the casualties. The American effort across the colonies was galvanized and the psychological dominance achieved by the British in the preceding year overturned. Howe was stunned that a strong German contingent could be surprised in such a manner and put up so little resistance. Washington’s constant problem was to maintain the enthusiasm of his army for the war, particularly with the system of one year recruitment and Trenton proved a much needed encouragement.

Elected President: 1789

Battle of Yorktown, 1781:Yorktown was the last major engagement of the American Revolutionary War.
