The Seven Years War was (1756-63). That would have made Washington about 24 years old when it first started. When the Second Continental Congress assembled in Philadelphia in May 1775, Washington, one of the Virginia delegates, was elected Commander in Chief of the Continental Army. On July 3, 1775, at Cambridge, Massachusetts, he took command of his ill-trained troops and embarked upon a war that was to last six grueling years.


Whoever wrote that didnt read the question; George Washington was fighting the french in the french and Indian war. In Europe called the seven years war. And he was in the then 13 colonies.
