George Washington: Fort Necessity In The French And Indian War

439 Words2 Pages
When I look at the George Washington picture I notice how the artist uses lighter colors to make Washington stand out among his achievements, such as the crumpled up British flag in the left hand corner. When I see this article of art I think that Washington must have been a wonderful officer and won many battles. However, when I add what I have learned about Washington it changes how I see the picture because Washington was not always a great general, he made mistakes but he learned from them. He learned a lot from his first battle at Fort Necessity in the French and Indian War, which helped him adopt the strategic defensive he used in the revolutionary war to help his men stay alive and keep fighting to show that American would not back down.
