Washington was actually not a great tactician. He lost more battles than he won and was know for how well he retreated and I love that about him.
I drew America younger than the show because I’ve always like the idea that America was still a very young country and rebelled at 13 -15 . Not to mention this documentary I keep listening to uses the metaphor of America being a child who’s growing up; and when a boy turned 15 they where considered an adult during the 1700’s.
Children were certainly expected to work more for the family at an early age in the 18th century. Determining the age of adulthood depended on the legal question.
Anyway, this picture is SO CUTE! <3
