PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson is based on George Washington's “Resignation Speech” December 23, 1784 in Annapolis, Maryland.

Near the end of the Revolutionary War, there was much speculation that George Washington, then Major General, would follow other world leaders in history by making a grab for power. Some colonists and soldiers wished he would do so, hoping he would become the king of a new American nation. What makes Washington unique is that he choose to release his grip on power and follow another path as your students will see in his resignation speech. This lesson comes with some background information on George Washington, an excerpt of his resignation speech and a page of questions for your students to answer.
