George Washingtons life is somewhat of a tall-tale of American History that actually occurred in the eighteenth century He had a very credible military career which began in the British military which he eventually retired from and later he became the leader of the Continental Army in the American Revolution He has also served in the House of Burgesses creating the tangent from his military career that would later lead him to his presidency of the United States of America George Washington was the most influential man in American history setting the milestone for anyone who wanted to become a great military leader and also created the idea of how the power of the presidency should be used From his birth George Washington was interested in the military He was born in 1732 to Augustine Washington who died about eleven years later After his fathers death his brother Lawrence became Georges role model Lawrence had served in the Royal Navy and George wanting to be like his role model wished to also go into the Royal Navy However his mother who was the largest influence throughout his life convinced him that he should not join the Navy and he decided not to join the Navy because of her This shows what George Washington was like in terms of who he looked up to and respected and also that he tried to impress people that he knew Had his mother not convinced him out of joining the Royal Navy he might have joined in an effort to impress his brother but his mother did and so he decided to respect her wishes and not join In 1752 George Washington applied to the Royal Governor of Virginia for a job in the militia The Governor gave him the position of training militia Although he was unsuited for the job because he had such little military training himself beforehand he still tried his hardest in training his men
