For Sale: £399
George Washington was the dominant military and political leader of
the new United States of America from 1775 to 1797, leading the American
victory over Britain in the American Revolutionary War, and presiding
over the writing of the Constitution in 1787.
As the unanimous
choice to serve as the first President (1789 - 1797) the president built
a strong, well-financed national government that avoided war,
suppressed rebellion and won acceptance among Americans of all types.
Acclaimed ever since as the "Father of his country", Washington, along
with Abraham Lincoln, has become a central icon of republican values,
self sacrifice in the name of the nation, American nationalism and the
ideal union of civic and military leadership.
