George Washington Childhood  

George Washington’s childhood was full of various different kinds of incidents as any other person. This very first president of the Unites States of America was born to Augustine Washington and Mary Ball Washington on 22 February 1732 in Virginia. He had nine siblings and grew up with them. George Washington had lost his father at an age of 11 years and then his brother Lawrence took the responsibility of bringing him up.

When Washington was just 3 years old, his family shifted to a place where they indulged themselves in tobacco growing on very large scales. This plantation came to be known as ‘Mount Vernon’ afterwards. As far as his childhood is concerned, he had no neighbors, so his playmates were none other than his siblings. His father decided to move to some other place when George was 7 years old.

George started off with his education in Fredericksburg and also helped in the management of the plantation. He stopped taking formal education after 14 years of age. After his father’s death his elder brother Lawrence had to bear all the responsibilities of the family. George Washington was very young when he became a part of the British navy; he was just 14 years old. When Washington was fifteen years old, he started studying to work as a surveyor. At his young age, there came a phase when he got in contact with Martha Dandridge and they both started dating each other. After a few years they both got married.
