Best Answer

At the age of 17 (1748) he became a land surveyor in Culpeper County, Virginia. He was an officer in the Virginia Militia from 1754 to 1759 during the French and Indian War. He worked as a surveyor until he inherited a large plantation which he managed. Besides planting crops, he had a large whiskey distillery on his plantation. Washington was Virginia's youngest delegate to the First Continental Congress in 1774, but his military experience led to his commission as Commander-in-Chief of the Continental army during the Revolutionary War (1775-1783).

Well, considering that Washington was president nearly 100 years prior to the civil war, it make no sense what you are asking. Though it must be noted that Washington himself was a slave owner. He died prior to the Civil War.
