Extractions: * SnowiNote: I was always going to be a teacher as far back as my memory allows. Yep, I was going to teach school, then teach folks how to fly... Helicopters and Jets. I even "taught" every kid in the neighborhood everything I could think of... Mostly Geography since I had a world map on my wall. Well, I got side-tracked and never taught in a school, but now I teach folks how to use the Internet, so I have fulfilled my "childhood dream." I hope you get to meet that one special teacher who not only makes learning fun, but can inspire you with the desire to do the same for someone else. Pass it on. - Snowhawk

Extractions: Encyclopedia Washington, George Washington first gained public notice late in 1753 when he volunteered to carry a message from Gov. Robert Dinwiddie of Virginia to the French moving into the Ohio country, warning them to quit the territory, which was claimed by the British. In delivering the message Washington learned that the French were planning a further advance. He hastened back to Virginia, where he was commissioned lieutenant colonel by Dinwiddie and sent with about 400 men to reinforce the post that Dinwiddie had ordered built at the junction of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers. The French, however, captured the post before he could reach it, and on hearing that they were approaching in force, Washington retired to the Great Meadows to build (July) an entrenched camp ( Fort Necessity ). Late in May he had won his first military victory (and his colonelcy) when he surprised (through the intelligence of his Native American allies) a small body of French troops. The French soon avenged this defeat, overwhelming him with a superior force at Fort Necessity on July 3, 1754. He surrendered on easy terms on July 4 and returned to Virginia with the survivors of his command. These battles marked the beginning of the last of the

Extractions: Encyclopedia French and Indian Wars Rivalry for the West, particularly for the valley of the upper Ohio, prepared the way for another war. In 1748 a group of Virginians interested in Western lands formed the Ohio Company , and at the same time the French were investigating possibilities of occupying the upper Ohio region. The French were first to act, moving S from Canada and founding two forts. Robert Dinwiddie , governor of Virginia, sent an emissary, young George Washington , to protest. The contest between the Ohio Company and the French was now joined and hinged on possession of the spot where the Monongahela and the Allegheny join to form the Ohio (the site of Pittsburgh). The English started a fort there but were expelled by the French, who built Fort Duquesne in 1754. Dinwiddie, after attempting to get aid from the other colonies, sent out an expedition under Washington. He defeated a small force of French and Native Americans but had to withdraw and, building

I have used the freedom of giving your name to Fort DuQuesne, as I hope it was in some measure the being actuated by your spirits that now makes us Masters of the place.

Extractions: by Alexander Chuang Early Life George Washington was born in Westmoreland County, Virginia, on February 22, 1732. In 1743, George lived with his brother at Mount Vernon Estate. With the help of his brother, George became a surveyor, which was George's first career. George's brother caught tuberculosis, a type of lung disease. In 1751, George went to Barbados with his brother, who hoped to regain his health. It was George's only trip outside the US. A year later, his brother died and George inherited Mount Vernon Estate. French and Indian War Washington joined the Virginia Militia in 1753. A militia was a army made up of volunteers to protect their homes from Indians, and other competing countries. The French Empire in North America was expanding. French soldiers claimed the Ohio River Valley, but the British also claim that land. The governor of Virginia asked Washington to travel to the Ohio Valley and warn the French to get off British territory. The French were polite to Washington, but they did not want to give up that territory. When Washington got back to Virginia, he was promoted to lieutenant colonel and return to the Ohio Valley with 150 men to guard it against the French. The French establish a fort in the Ohio Valley. Washington and his men built a fort called, "Fort Necessity." He attacked a small French force and withdraw to Fort Necessity. The French retaliated by sending a much larger force to attack Washington's army. After a day of fighting, Washington's army was forced to surrender. British and colonial officers were upset by Washington's defeat. Washington decided to resign from the militia in 1754. In the following year, he volunteered to join a expedition under British general Braddock to destroy Fort Duquesne, a French fort that controlled the Ohio Valley. The French and Indians ambushed Braddock's army. Washington tried to rally the Virginia troops during the confusion, but the expedition was a failure, but this event enhanced Washington's military skills and reputation. After Braddock's defeat, the governor made Washington chief of the Virginia militia. In 1758, he helped the British army take over Fort Duquesne.
