Synopsis: As a youth, Washington was close to his half-brother Lawrence. When Lawrence dies, George inherits Lawrence's land and home at Mount Vernon. George Washington is elected to the Continental Congress, and when fighting breaks out between England and the colonies at Lexington, the Congress names Washington commander of the new Continental Army.
Reaction: A very fast and quick summary of what a Washington went through, but it gives a good overview of what kind of man he was.
Personal Rating: 6/10
