Despite a mediocre military record, George Washington became commander of the Continental Army. He didn’t write the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution, and yet, George Washington became not only our first President, but is justifiably recognized as the Father of Our Country.  Blaine Davies explores the life of George Washington, and explains why “the man who wouldn’t be king” was the one indispensable man of the American Revolution and the founding of our republic.
