World War Military History


The military had plans for George before they recruited him at thirteen. Soldiers discovered that George had escaped. His mother helped him. His father was gone. George’s mother was beaten, locked up, and put behind bars, while grieving over the reality of never seeing her son again. She believed that life alone in America would be safer than a life of servitude shoeing horses before battle. Stories vary as to how long she was beaten by the military: Some say months. Others accounts are two years.
