KNOW YOUR AMERICA "George Washington"

We travel from the skies over Korea to the forests of colonial Pennsylvania...
 ...for a tale of Colonel George Washington of the Virginia Militia!
This story from the anthology Treasure Comics #9, published in 1946, doesn't get all the facts right.
The French and Indians actually ran into the British and Colonials by accident, not a planned ambush.
However, they reacted faster than the British, and despite being outnumbered, quickly gained the advantage over the British using guerrilla tactics.
Until next time...
