This PowerPoint covers the two terms of George Washington's administration. It begins by briefly examining the formation of the U.S. government under the recently ratified Constitution including the passage of the Bill of Rights and the Judiciary Act of 1789. It then delves into Hamilton's financial plan highlighting the funding of the debt and the creation of the Bank of the United States. This leads directly into the split between Hamilton and Jefferson and the development of the Federalist and Democratic-Republican parties. Foreign affairs dominate the second half of the presentation. Things like the Citizen Genet affair, Jay's Treaty, and Pinckney's Treaty are covered. It concludes with Washington's Farewell Address and death. The presentation is based on chapter 10 of The American Pageant, 14th edition. It can easily be split into two halves, one for each of Washington's terms in office.
