Product Description

George Washington was the first President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

He presided over the convention that drafted the current United States Constitution and during his lifetime was called the "father of his country." After leading his country through 8 long years of war, having established the United States Of America, Washington was once again called upon to serve this country.

During the presidential election of 1789, he received a vote from every elector to the Electoral College, the only president in American history to be elected by unanimous approval. He took the oath of office at Federal Hall in New York City, the capital of the United States at the time.

With the help of Alexander Hamilton, he composed his “Farewell Address” to the American people, which urged his fellow citizens to cherish the Union, avoid partisanship, and permanent foreign alliances. In March 1797, he turned over the government to John Adams and returned to Mount Vernon, determined to live his last years as a simple gentleman farmer.
