George Washington in the French and Indian War
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Most people know that George Washington was the first president of the United States. However, many people don't know that he did many things before this. He fought in the French and Indian War. This is when people really started to notice him. He did many amazing things in this war.
 
2     George Washington was 22 when the French and Indian War started. He had grown up on a plantation. His father was very rich. When he was young, he worked as a surveyor. He often traveled to the land in the west that was claimed by the French.
 
3     In 1753, Washington was in Virginia. He volunteered to take a message to the French in Ohio. The message asked the French to leave Ohio. The English thought the land was theirs. They did not want the French living on it. The French ignored the message. Washington went back to Virginia. He wrote in a diary about how dangerous and difficult the trip was.
