ABSTRACT
The author discusses a brief biography of U.S. first Commander-in-Chief, George Washington as depicted in his book George Washington: The Founding Father, by Paul Johnson. Johnson emphasizes how the Colonies had more than 100 years of experience in running their own affairs by the time Great Britain tried a more direct approach in governing. When the Revolutionary War came, Washington was named commander of the ragtag Continental Army by the Continental Congress.
