The American was voted the winner in a contest run by the National Army Museum to identify the country's most outstanding military opponent.
He was one of a shortlist of five leaders who topped a public poll and on Saturday was selected as the ultimate winner by an audience of around 70 guests at a special event at the museum, in Chelsea, west London.
In second place was Michael Collins, the Irish leader, ahead of Napoleon Bonaparte, Erwin Rommel and Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.
At the event, each contender had their case made by a historian giving a 40 minute presentation. The audience, who had paid to attend the day, then voted in a secret ballot after all five presentations had been made.
Dr Stephen Brumwell, who had championed Washington, said: "As British officers conceded, he was a worthy opponent."

Return to his farm, West predicted -- accurately, as it turned out.
"If he does that," King George remarked, "he will be the greatest man in the world."
They will revote as soon as the Muzzies take over and reform the nation as Englandstan.
Allah is Britain’s greatest foe ever.
#2 is stupidity.
Gotta point out that, unlike ol’ Boney, Washington was never prepared to invade the UK.
It is notable that Washington was the least willing foe they have ever faced. He was a loyal British subject who could no longer withstand the abuse of an arrogant government. It was not for church, grandeur, or empire. It was with divine provenience and his faith in man to accept personal responsibility and rule his own destiny, that Washington led a rag-tag army against the most powerful military of the time and prevailed.
America’s greatest foe was Jimmy Carter before Obama came along.
Allah is a fictitious distortion of the one true God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Muslims, throughout history, when it comes to open conflict--have consistently shown themselves to be cowardly and incompetent.
They will not...take over Britain.
Might have turned out different if Shaka Zulu had been born 40 years later.
George Washington was also our greatest president ever.
I didn’t see it yesterday. Glad it was posted again.
Allah is an alias of Lucifer.
"Muslims, throughout history, when it comes to open conflict--have consistently shown themselves to be cowardly and incompetent."
How about deception? Geurilla tactics? Infiltration? Subversive tactics?
Additionally, I would just like to point out that western civilization has not demonstrated anything close to military competence since about the 1940's. What we have shown is that this country is full to the brim of and populated by -idiots- except for Ronald Reagan.
"They will not...take over Britain."
Perhaps their goal is not to take it over. Perhaps their goal is to use the systems of the country to grow their own strength within the country while exploiting every design flaw and the stupidity of every citizen in such a way to cause the country to simply collapse upon itself?
When you have a prince of your nemesis country thinking of converting to your cult, then you do not even have a nemesis country any longer, they don't even exist.
The world will never forget the year that General Washington sent his air force to bomb the British into submission. The colonists started off with the air fields and radar stations but before longed they switched to terror bombing of London and other cities. But the plucky Brits held out and within a few years Washington was hiding in his bunker in Philadelphia, as his former victims closed in for the kill.
It was posted TWICE yesterday and more than 90 people commented on one, or the other, of the 2 postings.
Yours was the 2nd post,
Kartographer's was the 4th post.
No blame, just the facts...
I DID do a search before posting, and I did another search today before notifying Kartographer. I found only 3 posts, and mine was the first. Did the one you find have a different title?
No blame, because it is an interesting article. But, I do wish that people will take the time to do a quick search before posting.
Only four times?
A lot of stuff gets reposted every two to four HOURS.
It may be the Keyword default that is the reason for so many multiple posts all around?
I always search by title. I did, and nothing came up before my post. This is not the first time that I have found ‘fault’ with the FR search function. But that is no reason to not use it because it does work most of the time.
