George Washington

George Washington as a child, though I'm not really sure if it's accurate.

George Washingtons house in Virginia. As you can see, it's a mansion.

George Washington

The person that contributed to George Washington most was most likely his doctors because they gave him dentures to save him from his rotting teeth. They also did everything they could to save George from a sickness, but George died by loss of blood. His doctors weren’t that skilled at that time, but they had theories like blood carries germs so they did bloodletting on him but it didn’t work. But they tried to do everything they could to save him so they are important in his life.

ADMIRIBALE QUALITIES George Washington was wise because he advised to wait to attack the British Redcoat fort. Turns out that the British fled and they burned the fort and took everything that they can use. Also, after George Washington crossed the Delaware, he attacked the battle hardened German Hessian camp. The Hessian camp was well guarded so Washington had to plan out a surprise attack. He caught the Germans by surprise and won with only two injuries. He also held Valley Forge with little supplies and food until a German trained the troops to be better. That is why he is wise. He is also brave because he managed to attack the tough German camp that was well guarded. He never gave up, even when he crossed the Delaware and his men had FROSTBITE. He only surrendered once in the three battles called the Indian war, the French war, and the major Civil war. That is why he is brave.

If I met George Washington in person I’d ask him,” Were there any times that when you felt doubtful?” like when I felt like I couldn’t pass a level on Robocop or Frontline Commando 2. George Washington would say, “Yes, I did at some times because sometimes I felt like all hope was lost.” Another question would be, “Did it feel uncomfortable when you had dentures?” because when I had glasses, they first felt weird and G.W. would probably say, “At first they felt weird in my mouth, but after a while I got used to them and they saved me from embarrassment.” My last question is, “Did you ever feel that you were destined for greatness?” because I have always dreamed I’d be rich. George Washington would probably say, “Yes, I did. I was rich when I was little. Well, that was true but I had no reason to think that.”
