As the first President of the United States of America, George Washington was aware that many of his actions would be regarded as precedents, meaning that many of the decisions he made in his presidency would inform the decisions of future Presidents. This week, we will focus on three precedents that Washington established (listed below).

For the assignment this week, write a 500-750 word essay which addresses each of the questions below.

Additionally, you should include the links to any news articles or websites you visit by copying and pasting the link at the end of your assignment.
