Out of Power
When George Washington was born there where of course no automobiles, airplanes, locomotives. There was no electricity and modern plumbing. Men, animals, wind, and falling water provided most of the harnessed energy to turn the grind stones or make a pulley move. Just think most kids play video games and on iPads but back then they had board games and just games they could come up with. There was no electronic heat or air conditioning And usealy used fire to provide. The light in there homes where mostly candle light. and there where also no digetal clocks or alarms to wake up There must of been a lot of people late for work.
What would happen If ?
Think about if George Washinton never to join the army then there would of been a differant first presadiant. There never would of been a congress in politices. Many more solgers would have died because Goerge made many smart desitions in combat to save lifes. So what do you think would be diffrent? Also what if Englend never won the French and Indian War would France still be in power today? Would we all speak French?
