George Washington
George Washington. George Washington (1732-1799) was president of the US from 1789-1797. He was the first president and was elected unanimously after leading the American army during the American Revolution and taking part in writing the American Constitution. Washington was an effective President who was good at organising and who discussed problems with other people before making decisions. He is now remembered as 'Father of his Country' and, as he successfully fought for freedom from British rule, is often seen as a symbol of national freedom in other countries. George Washington's birthday, 22nd February, is now commemorated in a national holiday in the United States, celebrated on the third Monday in the month as "Presidents Day". www.activityvillage.co.uk
