About The Book

When George Washington was eleven years old, he wanted nothing more than to visit his brother who lived many miles away. George's mother would not allow him to go, but George thought of a clever way to convince her. His first victory wasn't as grand as leading the troops during the Revolutionary War, but it showed the determined type of man he was to become.
