George Washington was the first president of the United States and is also a playable hero character in Age of Empires III and The WarChiefs.


George Washington is a hero infantry unit and fights with his officer's saber. Like normal heros Washington is able to regenerate hit points when fallen and is also able to collect Treasures, but sadly is a minor hero so cannot build Trading Posts and has no special attack.


Washington is first featured in Age of Empires III as Colonel Washington who is a British officer during the French and Indian War. Washington and his men fought for General Warwick until they consider their British General a traitor because he is working with The Circle. So Washington and his men deflected to John Black and help him defeat Warwick with supplies of soldiers.

Later Washington is featured again in The WarChiefs as the new general for the U.S. Continental Army in the American Revolution. Washington also meets Nathaniel Black after the Battle of Bunker Hill, who aids him and his men in conflicts such as the Battle of Trenton and the struggle in Valley Forge. Later, Washington becomes the political leader of the newly formed United States as its first President.
