Students examine letters and public papers to appraise Washington’s character, his military and political leadership, his contributions to the formation of a new government under the Constitution, and the evolution of his perceptions on the institution of slavery. Lessons in the unit introduce students to a variety of documents, allowing them to distinguish Washington as a unique individual who played a pivotal role in the development of the American Republic rather than an abstract figure. Documents include the “Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior,” the Newburgh Address, excerpts from Washington’s diary, the Farewell Address, and his last will and testament.
