Written for ages 10 and up -- enjoyed by adults! In each new crisis, the young United states of america sought out George Washington. On a hazardous mission for the British army, young Major Washington had no idea that 1 day he would lead an army of fellow colonials inside a bitter battle for independence against Fantastic Britain herself, one of the most powerful empire in the world. Just as George dug his pole in and pushed with all his might, a block of ice hit the raft -- the raft slammed into the pole -- and George was overboard. As commander in chief with the Continental army, chairman of the Constitutional Convention, and first president, this indispensable American served the struggling nation when its survival and form hung in the balance. Behind George had been enemies; in front, a raging ice-packed river. Poling across had seemed his best chance, but now large blocks of ice slammed into his makeshift raft, twisting it off course.
