Father of our Country. His life and the significance of his leadership in the Revolutionary War and in our new nation. Riding a horse into battle made him a clear target for the British. Many guns were fired, some bullets grazed him, but he wasn’t injured. Other scenes include his home at Mt. Vernon, George and Martha together, the official swearing in as President, kneeling in the snow in prayer before a battle and crossing the Delaware to do battle in the midst of winter with his fellow soldiers breaking the ice.
