George Washington’s World 3-22-13
By Genevieve Foster
Today I read a little more about George Washington. He got married to Martha Custis, a young widow, and took his family to live on his plantation,
. Mount Vernon
Thomas Jefferson was about sixteen when George Washington got married. I read a little about him too.
I also read about the end of the Seven Years War, which was basically a war with Frederick of Prussia and George of England on one side, and all the other countries in
on the other side. George II of England died and George III wasn’t interested in
helping . It wasn’t going well at all for Frederick Prussia, when the Empress of Russia died, and
the new Emperor liked
and didn’t want to fight. Then Louis of
France got tired of fighting too, and the other countries dropped out one by
one until only Frederick of Prussia and Maria Theresa of Prussia were
left. The war was over. Austria
I also read about a young poet named Goethe.
