George Washington was amazing! He lived from 1732 to 1799 and he did so many good things! Once, as a boy, he chopped down his father's cherry tree, and he told his father all about it. Also, he was even more admired when he became President, so much that they wanted him to become a king! But, unfortunately, he turned down the offer, upsetting lots of Americans in the process. He never belonged to a political party, he believed they were abominations that would split the nation apart.
