Document types

    This title includes hundreds of interesting letters between Washington and his Secretaries of State.

    Events that preoccupied George Washington during his years as president are brought to life through topics ranging from matters as simple as trip itineraries to more complex issues such as the conduct of the US in wars of other nations.

    Some examples include Thomas Jefferson's opinion of the constitutionality of the Residence Act in 1790 (images 1 & 2), and Edmund Randolph's pleasure with the "neatness & simplicity" of the new US silver coin (image 3).
