Washington spent his boyhood at Winchester Va . He often stayed in the woods with his friends, the Indian boys.At seventeen he surveyed all of what was planned to be "Virginia" to the Great Lakes, for Lord Fairfax who also lived at Winchester. In my opinion, Washington was an opportunist.He married Martha a native and adopted her CUSTIS children. Martha had the money.She was wealthy. WAshington had nothing.
He did know the Natives of Winchester or of: OPEQUON Shawnee Indain village.
