Founding Father. Chief Commander. Soldier. Leader. American. —
Most well-known for serving as the first President of the United States, George Washington was many things – but more than anything, Washington was, from birth, chiefly American – for better or for worse, his values in principle defined those the U.S. holds true today. Born into a Virginian farming family and educated in mathematics, he quickly accelerated his philosophical beliefs in democracy to lead U.S. independence from the U.K. Happy Father’s Day, George. And thank you.
