George Washington (1732-1799) – 1ST President of the United States (1789-1797)
George Washington is known for his greatness as a general and as the nation’s first President. He was very disappointed when two different political parties were developing at the end of his first term. Much to the nation’s disappointment Washington did not run for a third term. In addition to serving as our first president, he was a successful leader in the fight for independence from Great Britain, the first person to sign the Constitution, the only President to be elected unanimously by the Electoral College (69 out of 69 votes), appointed the first Cabinet with four (4) members, and appointed the first ten (10) Justices of the Supreme Court.
We honor Mr. Washington because his service to his country clearly makes him a Legacy Champ. If you want to be a Legacy Champ in your own special way, then contact The Mendel Law Firm, L.P., for a free initial consultation on estate planning, trust planning, and/or probate issues.
