Overview

It was a calm, sunny day in the year 1750. The scene: a piece of forest land in the north of Virginia, near a large stream of water.
Surveying equipment was lying about, and several men were resting under the trees. Their dress and appearance showed that they were laying out the wild lands of the country.
They had just finished their dinner and were letting it settle.
Apart from the group walked a young man with a tall and compact frame. He moved with the firm and steady tread of someone used to constant exercise in the open air.
His face wore a look of confidence not usually found in one so young, especially since he was just over eighteen years of age.
Suddenly there was a shriek, quickly followed by several more. It came from the other side of a small piece of wooded land.
At the first scream, the youth turned his head in the direction of the sound. When it was repeated, he pushed aside the undergrowth and dashed to the banks of the stream.

Find out what George Washington saw there, and what he did.
Ages 8 and up.
