George Washington Charlie Causey


George Washington was born in Bridges creek, Virginia to mother Mary Bell Washington and father Augustine Washington. He lived in Bridges creek, Fredericksburg, Westmoreland, and Mount vernon. As a child he was know for chopping down a cherry tree, and not lying when asked what had been done, this is considered a myth created by a writer after washington's death. Some people believed he was unable to tell lies due to his honest nature. When he was fourteen he wanted to join the army but abided his mother’s wishes to stay with her. When he turned 17 he did end up joining a small army called Virginia Militia.


His education resulted from a process of close study and imitation of the Virginia elite. His father and two elder brothers went to appleby school in england but his father's death when George was eleven resulted in him not having the same advantage. And such he went to school in Virginia .This informal education helped to shape Washington's perceptions about the world and ultimately provided him with both self- discipline and social grace, skills that helped him in a polite society. Born into mid-level gentry status, Washington seized opportunities to fill in gaps in his formal education through extensive readings, practicing elite behaviors, and formulating a list of prominent connections.
