Everything that George Washington did, from the inaugural oath, through the establishment of the US Treasury, to the creation of the Coast Guard, cabinet meetings, appointment of ambassadors, and justices of the Supreme Court, his dealings with Congress, to the time when Washington unilaterally refused to run for a third term for the presidency was a precedent.

Meet Rich Rosenthal, lecturer and president of the North Jersey Civil War Round Table for the discussion about George Washington and his firsts.
