The “Father of His Country”, George Washington was born on February 22, 1732. He became commander in chief of the Continental Army in 1775, and  fought a long and arduous war for freedom from British rule. The war was finally over in 1781, when the Continental Army with the help of the French, forced British General Cornwallis to surrender at Yorktown.
In 1787, Washington was unanimously elected president by the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. He took the oath of office in 1789. He served two terms of office from 1789 until 1797.
After the presidency, Washington retired to his home in Mount Vernon, Virginia where he died on December 14, 1799 of a throat infection.
