Ch 6 Sec 1 & Washington & Adams Administrations George Washington was the clear choice to lead the new nation, as America’s hero of Independence, he had kept the army together and found a way to win and then was a leader in the creation of the new Constitutional Government. His popularity was unquestioned. He was inaugurated at Federal Hall in NYC on April 30, 1789 and went to work on the young nation’s issues. Realizing that the Executive Branch wasn’t just about one man, Washington tried to bring in each section of the nation to his executive branch and share the responsibility for governing by creating a cabinet of people that he trusted, that were capable of heading departments, and that represented each section of the new nation (to combat sectionalism). One of the biggest issues that he faced was debt: the national government was $54 million in debt and the states also owned 21 ½ million. He left the handling of this up to his Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
