Today we delved into the Presidency of George Washington. We analyzed how he shaped the Presidency, discussed Jefferson's tenure as Secretary of State, and examined the purpose and outcome of Hamilton's 5-Point Plan (we also listened to a few tracks from Hamilton, which was awesome as always).
Your homework tonight is to finish the Hamilton vs. Jefferson Ideal American sheet that we started in class today.
Here are the instructions:
Using the desires/fears of Hamilton and Jefferson, annotate a map with their “Ideal Americas”
