When the Second Continental Congress assembled in Philadelphia in 1775, George Washington was elected Commander in Chief of the Continental Army. He took command of his poorly trained troops and embarked on a war that would last six years. In 1781, with the aid of the French allies, he forced the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown. When the new Constitution was ratified, he was elected President. His leadership on the battlefield won America its independence, but it was his leadership in office that created the mold from which the United States was cast.
