Sadness His parents were slaves. His father died right before he was born.
Poorness He taught himself to read. His Family was so poor that they couldn’t afford to buy a pencil. He made a holder and used a pencil that was 1.4 inches long.
Diseases When George was a baby he had a disease called whooping cough. He was left very sick and he couldn’t do hard work like the other slaves His chores were cooking and sewing
The 3 R’s George would tell people, "Don't throw any thing away every thing can be reused he would often tell people.
