About this item

George Washington (February 22, 1732 December 14, 1799) was the dominant military and political leader of the new United States of America from 1775 to 1799. He led the American victory over Britain in the American Revolutionary War as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army in 17751783, and he presided over the writing of the Constitution in 1787. As the unanimous choice to serve as the first President of the United States (17891797), he developed the forms and rituals of government that have been used ever since, such as using a cabinet system and delivering an inaugural address. Washington has long been regarded as the "Father of his country".Solid brass, electro-plated with non-tarnishing silver finish, giclee print. Approx. 1" W x 3.50" L
