I agree with the paragraphs posted! It was that Allengenhy skirmish that Captain Washington spent the whole of his life, stalwart and resolute, to fix. At the time Washington confessed in writing to being THE Assassin who fired the shot which killed the French nobleman and legate. Sort of like the situation of Moses, both Washington and Moses were killers as young men by Necessities' Circumstance, and yet by the dedication, resolve and humility of the remainder of their lifes each came to found a great Nation.

My information is a bit different...he was a lt. colonel in the Virginia militia at the time and not a captain. Also, he never said he fired the first shot at Jumonville Glen...since he did not.
