The history game.

RE: The history game.
At first he was a commander in the British army, but he finished with them before joining "the rebel cause" (yep, star wars reference there). Being the only one with any military experience, and knowing how the Brits would fight, he was the only logical choice to lead the colonies. None of that was a secret amongst the revolutionaries, and although there were some who didn't like it, they had no other choices.

As for becoming president, he was initially offered the title of "King" but turned it down because they didn't free themselves from one monarchy just to go into another one. So they changed the title to "President" and offered it to him as he was also known to be extremely honest and well educated (if you look at his speeches, they're written at a very high level, nearly the same as a college textbook). He accepted, and at the time it was a "for life" position. After serving in office for several years, he left and paved the way for future leaders such as Taft (who was so fat he literally got stuck in the White House bathtub), FDR and Obama.

Are you talking full on war or a duel or a lawsuit? Also, which government? There's over 200 countries in the world.
