DID YOU KNOW? A young George Washington, an officer in the Virginia Militia during the French and Indian War, desperately wanted to get an officers commission in the British Army. Imagine how history would have been altered if he did receive his coveted commission but thankfully it never happened.
Principally because of the arrogance of the British commanders in America who simply saw him as a Colonial Militia officer at best.
His frustration and bitterness fueled his future fire as the leader of the War of Independence. His disdain for the British set the stage for his eventual Presidency…just imagine how America, even the world would have been different if Washington did lead that charge!
