In 1787 George Washington was convinced to go to the Constitutional convention and they met in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from May 14 to September 17. They talked about different problems and in result they crated the united states constitution. I chose this because this is important to America’s history and its one of the great things George Washington did and many people don’t know how the constitution was made.
In the summer of 1775 during the French and Indian war the British army tried to capture the French fort Duquesne but George Washington defended the fort and defeated them. I decided to choose this war because it is one of the many wars George Washington helped to protect something he cared about. In addition, this shows how hard his army works.
On July 4th 1776 George Washington signed the declaration of independence because he was one of the few people who thought the united states of America should have independence from the British. I think this important because this is a moment that changed America’s future and George Washington was very important to Americas history.
On April 30 1789 George Washington was sworn in as president in new York city. The evening celebration started and ended by 13 skyrockets and 13 cannons. The reason I chose this picture is because this is a tradition that has been going on for a very long time and its still being done until this day so its like bringing the past to our future.
On Christmas 1776 George Washington wanted to transport 2,400 Continental soldiers across an icy river in Washington's commitment to cross the Delaware River one night, directly into a severe winter storm. The reason he did this was his army did not have a major victory so the reason for this logic is he wanted to give his army motivation to keep going during this time of battles. The reason why I decided to put this into my museum because it shows the dedication George Washington had to his army and how much he cared for them.
