It was a hot summer day. Some very few soldiers were working hard mending a collapsed break apart bridge. The wooden bridge was very old but it was very essential important. The captain was shouting at the workers. But a man on a horse happened to cross that way and gave them a helping hand to lift the log. The Captain thanked the man and asked him where can he meet him again.The man said, “Whenever you need help,call your President.”
He was none other than the first American president George Washington!
