I think George Washington was a great leader. He was brave, smart, adventurous, and courageous. Washington was a great leader because, he lead his troops across the Delaware river. Most people didn’t want to do that because they knew that if they fought they would get defeated. But, Washington knew they could do it and they had nothing to loose. When he was a leader his army looked up to him and trusted him, and he lead them to victory. “Do great leaders make history? Or does history make great leaders?” I believe that great leaders do make history. I do because some great leaders like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson did make history. They both accomplished a lot and everyone learns about them in school. There can also be great leaders who make history who aren’t famous like people you know. Kids don’t learn about them at school but you yourself know how they were a leader, and remember them as making history. I don’t think history makes great leaders. I disagree with that because there are a lot of different people who made history that aren’t leaders or if they were leaders they might of been a horrible one. Just because someone is old and in our history books it doesn’t mean they are a great leader you have to hear their story behind them first.
