All About George Washington

Children's Book About George WashingtonThe United States is currently on its 44th president. Everyone has their opinion about all of them, but I believe I’m safe in saying that George Washington may be the most favored, or at least, the man that everyone seems to admire and be in awe of hundreds of years later.

First American Flag with only 13 StarsGeorge Washington was the very first president of the United States. He started his term on April 30th, 1789. In fact, he was the only president who never actually ran for the position but was unanimously voted in, not for one, but for two terms.

Portrait Image of President George WashingtonGeorge Washington was a hands-on President and even fired the first shot in the French/Indian War. He was a formidable man standing at 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing around 200 pounds. He was so strong that he could crack open a walnut with just his thumb and forefinger, but never shook hands with people. Perhaps, Washington was a bit of a germ-a-phobe or was he nervous of his own strength? We will probably never know for sure

Was it the fact that George Washington had wonderful attributes that made him well loved, or the fact that being the very first president ever, he didn’t have the hassles and endless tasks like, the US deficit and always present danger of nuclear wars to worry about?

With the state of the planet now, I think even the greatest of men would have a difficult time juggling everything the world is throwing at them. This job of being president is not an easy task, after all, you have a lot of lives riding on every decision you make. That’s a lot of pressure and not one to be taken lightly.

Flag of the United States of AmericaI’m sure each President goes into the White House with high hopes of making a huge difference, only to be left with the mess of cleaning up past mistakes.

Whether you like our current president or not, we need to look at governing has a whole and the decisions that are, not only being passed down by him, but also all those under him. The president is not an island and a lot of these issues are being dealt with by many people, not just one man.

    Washington deserves enormous credit for ensuring the success of democracy in America, by rejecting calls to make him king and refusing to serve more than two terms as president.

    For me, George Washington was the greatest President in the history of the USA for the reason that the freedom was gained and the United States was formed. He was indeed known as the American Hero and I strongly agree on that. It is also not a questionable recognition when he was declared as “The General of the Armies” for he did everything for all the colonies to be free from the British revolution. Well, this is a good source of knowledge for kids that’s why this page is highly recommendable.
