Did George Washington really chop down his families cherry tree with a hatchet? We may never know, but this website I went to seems pretty accurate on there answers. Heres a link to it. I can not actually tell whether this is a true facto or not, there is no proof i have found, so im just going to stick with my answer no.
In class we are watching a movie called; The Crossing, which in a few short words, its about the Revolutionary war. George Washington is the head of his army and wants to cross the Delaware River and attack the reckless Hessians after having a battle with the redcoats. The Hessian’s were brutal German troops that are working for England. George Washington does not like this whole idea what so ever because the war started mostly because of how many taxes were accumulating. Washington was a great leader, as well as President. He once quoted; “Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” He is right, government is so tough that if you try to go against it, you’re going to lose.
