Summary
George Washington, was a social climber, land-hungry Virginia surveyor, and military officer who often blamed others for his own errors. He gradually built a reputation as a gentleman by educating himself in the classics and sciences, entering politics, and marrying one of the wealthiest women in Virginia. The battle of Trenton changed everything with a victory both for America and Washington himself. His skill and bravery transformed Washington into the very symbol of the Revolutionary War
