In 1749, Washington was appointed as surveyor for Culpepper County, Virginia after a trek for Lord Fairfax into the Blue Ridge Mountains. He was in the military from 1752-8 before being elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses in 1759. He spoke against Britain's policies and became a leader in the Association. From 1774-5 he attended both Continental Congresses. He led the Continental Army from 1775-1783 during the American Revolution. He then became the president of the Constitutional Convention in 1787.

Washington was the commander-in-chief of the colonial forces during the entire Revolutionary War. Not only did he conduct the war, but he also had to work constantly with the colonial governments to get supplies and men for his army.

After war ended he was active in getting the new constitution written and getting the new federal government set up and running.

Before he became active in the pre-revolutionary congresses, he was a large-scale planter, a surveyor and military officer.
