Whatever may be its final outcome the Russian Revolution of 1917 bids fair to remain one of the great events of modern history.

In this biography for young people, Calista McCabe Courtenay takes the reader from George Washington the surveyor to his early military career, first as a colonel in the Virgina militia and then as a member of General Braddock'a staff during the French and Indian War.
