Archiving Early America: Primary Source Material from 18th Century American History Présidents Américains de George Washington à Barack Obama - A/ 1er au 10e Présidents - 1789-1797 George Washington George Wahington est né le 22 février 1732 en Virginie dans une famille de planteurs. Les récits rapportés de son enfance le décrivent comme un jeune homme ayant un grand sens de l'intégrité et du devoir. La mort de son père alors qu’il n’a encore que 11 ans lui impose une lourde tache; il va devoir prendre en charge sa famille. Ses talents de cavalier lui permettent d'être nommé à 16 ans intendant du nouveau comté de Culpepo. Alors qu'il ne possède aucune expérience militaire, la bravoure dont il fait part dans le conflit qui oppose la Grande-Bretagne à la France lui permet d’être nommé colonel des troupes de Virginie en août 1755. A partir de 1759 jusqu'à l'aube de la guerre d'indépendance, il se retire dans le domaine familial de Mont Vernon. Le second Congrès Continental se déroule à Philadelphie en mai 1775. Il accepte cette lourde fonction et prend la tête d'une armée inentraînée, qui manque d'armes et qui ne dispose pas d'uniformes. Il est réélu en 1792 pour un second mandat.

About Other VOA Material on This Web Site Voice of America Special English Study History : The USA Buffalo Bill "In 1886, Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show played to over one million people in New York city. It was one of the most elaborate shows on earth: there were cowboys and Indians, sharp shooters including the famed Annie Oakley, hundreds of horses, buffalo, elk and donkeys, and more than two hundred cast members, all moving about in a sweeping western landscape of mountains and plains. Soon after the show's stunning success in New York, it would go on to dazzle crowds in London, Paris, Rome and Barcelona, cementing the legend of the Wild West in the minds of people around the globe. Behind the extravaganza was one man -- a meager plainsman turned international celebrity and frontier hero, whose meteoric rise to fame was made possible only by his genius, and his hucksterism. His name was William Cody,better known to the world as Buffalo Bill."
