George Washington is one of those presidents that everyone knows. Before being the unaminous choice for the first person to enter the presidency, he led the Continental forces in the American Revolutionary War. He also started the two-term tradition, which would last until 1941. However, shortly after, his tradition would become a part of a constitutional amendment and is now law.
Washington was born on February 22, 1732, according to today's calendar. Back then, a different calendar was used, which would say that Washington was born on February 11, 1731. He was born in Pope's Creek, Virginia.
Two years after leaving office, Washington died in his home in Mount Vernon on December 14, 1799 of a throat infection. However, some say that the doctors' method at that time (which was to draw out the patient's blood in hopes of getting out the illness), was the reason he died.
