Description Biography of Geo. Washington
Transcript Note: Transcripts are automatically transcribed and may contain errors.
George Washington understood the enormity of his position as the first president of the United States. It was his responsibility to establish the precedent which all future presidents would follow. So he requested the title of Mr President, rejecting royal monikers like Your Highness or Your Excellence. And perhaps most importantly, he did not seek reelection after two terms, imposing an unofficial limit on the office.
