Description

Over the next four years, George Washington and many other Americans saw that this new country needed central government to keep peace at home, and gain respect abroad. In Philadelphia, 55 men argued out a strong, yet flexible U.S. constitution - a set of laws by which people could govern themselves. It wasn't perfect, but it seemed to George, who presided over the continental Congress "A little short of a miracle." The federal government would have the legislative branch - headed by the Congress - to make the laws; the judicial branch, headed by the Supreme Court - to explain the laws - and the Executive branch, headed by a president, to enforce them. It didn't take much arguing to decide who that should be. In 1789, George Washington was overwhelmingly elected the first president of the United States. Be sure to get all 3 parts, for a full understanding of George Washington, the Hero that Fathered America.
