Template:InfoboxGeorge Washington (b. February 22, 1732 – d. December 14, 1799) was the first president of the United States, serving as the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. He also presided over the convention that drafted the Constitution, which replaced the Articles of Confederation. Washington had a vision of a great and powerful nation that would be built on republican lines using federal power. He sought to use the national government to preserve liberty, improve infrastructure, open the western lands, promote commerce, found a permanent capital, reduce regional tensions and promote a spirit of American nationalism. He was married to Martha Washington.
Washington died at his home around 10 p.m. on Saturday, December 14, 1799, aged 67. The last words that were in his diary were "'Tis well."
- In the war, Washington never got shot, he got bullet holes in his vest but never once did he get shot. God protected him.
- They say that Washington cut down a cherry tree, but they say he never cut down the tree.
