    Default George Washington= Greatest American

    I watched a History Channel show on him and learned things I did not know and I now believe that George Washington was the greatest American ever.

    He led the military and won the war for our independence and at the end of the war he kept the American officers from turning on the new Government for owed pay and other promises the Gov. made. He insisted on a President that had a limited term and not a monarch. He did not want to be President but did so because he recognised the need of the country and put it before his own.

    So what do you all think?

    Always the negative with you big. Just a little hint, everyone has some issues. Slavery was perfectly legal then, not saying it was right but it was not viewed as an evil yet.

    Scott I agree. Both men kept the country together in a time when the nation was divided or loosely held together.

    I cannot tell a lie: Washington was the greatest.

    Note the title of the thread. Stalin wasn't an American. I would have thought you knew that??

    Musta been the special on the American Revolution. His strategic convergence of all troops into eastern Virgnia to entrap and then sack Conwallis was sheer genius, apart from Conwallis leaving himself open to being obliterated.

    Clearly leading the rebellion into a revolution and aligning all of the egos to remain united as a single country was no small undertaking.

    Yes, Washington, Lincoln and I believe FD Roosevelt belong among the top three. Each conquered national strife and led the country in time of dire war. Add resolving the Depression to Roosevelt' accomplishments.
