The U.S. Founding Fathers
The Founding Fathers of the United States of America were political leaders and statesmen who participated in the American Revolution by signing the United States Declaration of Independence, taking part in the American Revolutionary War, and establishing the Constitution. John, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and George Washington are the founding fathers of the united states.George Washington was born on his family estate just off the south bank of the Potomac River near the mouth of Pope's Creek in Westmoreland County, Virginia on February 22, 1732. His father was Augustine Washington a planter. George Washington died on December, 14, 1799. George Washington was an American general and commander-in-chief of the colonial armies in the American Revolution and the first U.S. president. George Washington is known for a lot of things such as being on the one dollar bill or the cherry tree story. George Washington had fought in the French and Indian war and the American Revolution in 1753. The French began expanding their military control into the "Ohio Country", a territory also claimed by the British colonies of Virginia and Pennsylvania. These competing claims led to a war in the colonies called the French and Indian War , and contributed to the start of the global Seven Years' War. Washington was at the center of its beginning. If I could talk to George Washington right now I would thank his for all of his services and making the U.S. if he had not existed there would be war and chaos and no United States of America. As you can probably tell I think that George Washington was the most important of the founding fathers. The reason is he fought many wars, he was the first president, he was commander-in-chief etc. By my opinion George Washington was the best president.
