After a time, this war came to an end. The English soldiers went back to England, and the colonies were free.

"Now," said the thirteen colonies. "We do not belong to England any more. We are the American people. We will call our country the United States. And we must have a president. Who shall it be?"

"George Washington," the people cried. "For he led our troops on to victory." And indeed, it was George
Washington who led the troops on to victory. He deserved the honor of being president.

The capital city of America at this time was New York. So to this city George Washington went to be made
the first president of the United States. The ceremony of officially making someone the president is called an inauguration.
