Many people helped win the Revolution. For example, there was John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin. One leader outshines all of these people. This man is George Washington. George grew up in Virginia with his family. When he was eleven, his father died, which changed his whole life. Instead of going to school in England, like all other boys his age, he went to a school where he lived. He did not let his lack of proper education stop him. He overcame his rough childhood and became one of the most powerful leaders of all time. Without this man, the colonies would never be as successful as the were.
