About this course:

In this course, we examine the creation of the US Constitution in 1787 and its implementation in 1789 and beyond, with special emphasis on their administrations covering the crucial formative years of 1789 to 1809. We explore the challenges that Washington faced as the first president, the critical precedents set by all three, and the foreign and domestic challenges each faced. We also analyze the long-term legacies they left both in the institution of the presidency as well as in the broader course of American history generally. This course will be recorded. Students will have access to videos for the duration of the course.
