George Washington (February 22, 1732- January 12, 1784) was a British colonel in the First Seven Years War, bussinessman, plantation owner, and Virginian aristocrat before the rise of the Union of Royal American States. He offered his military services during the Great Revolution, although he was never commissioned by the Continental Assembly. One of the richest men in the country, he was fully supportive of independence from Great Britain. Washington was murdered by a mob led by William Franklin (son of General Benjamin Franklin) while on a trip to Philadelphia, becoming the second victim of the Reign of Horror.
