As a Unit in the CampaignsEdit

Colonel Washington Edit

"George Washington was born in Virginia in 1732 to wealthy, land-owning parents. He served in the First Virginia Regiment (part of the British military) as a lieutenant colonel. While trying to drive the French out of Ohio Country, Washington set off a series of events that eventually ignited the Seven Years' War, also known as the French and Indian War. In 1759 he left the military, married, and settled back in Virginia with his wife and family. In later years Washington would go on to have a significant role in the founding of the United States of America."

General Washington Edit

"The only U.S. President elected unanimously, George Washington stands tall in history as one of America’s greatest leaders. A Virginian landowner and farmer, General Washington understood well both the sword and the plowshare.

As a general, Washington was greatly admired by those who served under him. Never one to remain on the sidelines, he led the charge into action time and time again. During the French and Indian War, Washington survived many battles, even having a horse shot out from under him on two occasions.

As commander in chief of the Continental army, Washington faced the great challenge of maintaining his troops’ morale during the bitter winter at Valley Forge.

George Washington is a hero infantry unit and fights with his officer's saber. Like normal heroes Washington is able to regenerate hit points when fallen and is also able to collect Treasures, but 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.
