George Washington grew up in the English colony of Virginia. He was tall and strong, fair in judgment, and respected by his friends as a good leader. As he grew older, George saw how England took advantage of the American colonies - and he didn't like it.

And when the colonies won their freedom, George was elected to lead the new nation as its first president.
