His Career: In 1774, the first meeting of the representatives of the thirteen American colonies took place. George Wahington was appointed to represent Virginia. In this session, all the members were unanimous in their protest against England. The next year the second session sat. In this session, George Washington was appointed as the Chief of Army of the entire colony.
On 6 June 1776, the representatives of the thirteen states collectively declared the Independence of the United States. A five-member management group was formed. Thomas Jefferson was elected as the head of this management group. The Declaration of Independence was issued on 4 July 1776. The war of the Americans with the British forces started in different provinces of the country. In the meantime, Washington had formed his own army. Among his troops, there were fewer regular troops. They had no combat experience and no advanced weapons. One day in a camp, a soldier fell ill with a cold. Last night, Washington himself took tea for that soldier.
At first, the English forces were successful but in the end, they were forced to retreat. In 1781, the English General Cornwallis was surrendered. The long five-year war came to an end. America wins this war. Wahington played the biggest role in winning this war. His willpower and love for the soldiers gave him the glory of a victorious hero in this battle.

In 1787, the representatives of all the provinces came together to draft the constitution of the country. Washington joined there. On 30 April 1789, Washington elected as the first President of the United States.
