Young George Washington


Physical Description

Come face to face with the story of the young George Washington, a strapping young officer in the Virginia militia who repeatedly found himself at the eye of the storm during the French and Indian War. He is shown here in artist Charles Wilson Peale's 1772 commemorative portrait, George Washington in the Uniform of a British Colonial Colonel, the rank Washington held during the French and Indian War period.
