Following the Constitutional Convention of May 1787, over which George Washington had presided, his ascent to the presidency was all but decided.
As commander of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, Washington had proven masterful at balancing the strategic and political demands of the office. His persistence and devotion to his men and his perpetual mindfulness of the ideals for which they were fighting won him the respect and loyalty of many.
As a result, his signature on the new Constitution was a deciding endorsement for some of those who had opposed federalization. Following the ratification of the Constitution by the necessary 9 states in July of 1788, Congress set January 7 of the following year as the date by which states were required to choose electors. Those chosen would cast their votes a month later, on February 4 for Washington.
