There were many great American figures of past and present day. However, the greatest American president in history is George Washington because of the following reasons: he served as a loyal soldier, as the first president, and as a wise political leader and pioneer after American Independence. Around mid-18th century, the thirteen colonies of North America declared independence from the oppressive monarch and his Parliament. They had decided to declare independence from Britain after the Age of Enlightenment, which was an age where people lived out their lives with reasoning and scientific evidence and doubted the idea of theocracy. Inevitably, the war against Britain followed, commonly known as the American Revolutionary War, and George Washington loyally served, first as a soldier, the Continental Army as its leader.

The American Revolution changed George Washington forever, both for what he stood for and the respect that he gained from the whole world. Washington led many battles throughout the American Revolution whether he won or not he was still known and feared for his perseverance. Once he set out to accomplish a task he would do it to the best of his abilities. Joseph Ellis summarizes the contributions made by Washington in the American Revolution in his first paragraph of chapter three with this thorough introduction "He was forty-three years old when he rode out of Mount Vernon toward Philadelphia. He was fifty-one when he arrived back at Mount Vernon on Christmas Eve, 1783 the most famous man in the world the cause he headed had not only smashed two British armies and destroyed the first British Empire, it had also set in motion a political movement committed to principles that were destined to topple the monarchical and aristocratic dynasties of the Old World."
However, their achievements are not as influential to today 's society as Lincoln 's were. Indeed Washington was our first president and lead us to our independence, but he was more skilled in the field of battle rather than leadership. Jefferson contributed to our history by writing the Declaration of Independence, but still Lincoln is a more common household name. This is due to the fact that all of his accomplishments are still beneficial to American citizen 's

George Washington had successful leadership and had played a key role in the American Revolutionary War and the start of forming The United States of America. George Washington showed success in leadership during the Battle of Trenton and the winter of Valley Forge and the Battle at Monongahela during the French and Indian War. Without the sneak attack on Christmas morning, Americans would not know how the outcome would have been if the attack did not occur on December 26, 1776. During the winter at Valley Forge, George Washington stood up for his army showing leadership and gaining popularity though out his army and American citizens.

Abraham Linclon, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson were all very great presindents. Between all three presients, I would have to choose Thomas Jefferson to be the strongest president,because of his outstanding accomplishments. Thomas Jefferson served to the New American Union for over 50 years. Thomas Jefferson didnt make all of his accomplishments while being in office. He made many different and many great accomplishments to his country.
The antebellum period took place before the civil war. During this time period, one can thoroughly see accomplishments of the presidents in charge during that time. There is one who stood out the most based on my criteria and his outstanding achievements and it was George Washington . He was one with the most accomplishments, foreign policies and impacted the union the most after his presidency. Being in charge of a nation is never easy no matter how much experience or prepared one is, issues are always going to arise whether it be political, economic,or social issues.
We aren’t even close to the full population voting during the election. From this past election, people still don’t understand how Clinton won the popular vote, and lost the election, and then they think this is all unfair. But that is not how the founding fathers had planned for it, because if the majority always won, then the minority would always lose. Also, there are so many people that don’t really understand politics and what each candidate represents and will do, if we
Out of the many presidents we 've had, the one that sticks out the most as strong is George Washington. Although Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson had some respectful feats, they are small in regard to George Washington 's accomplishments. George Washington went through many hardships and tough tests in his lifetime. He has shown his strength by responding to these tests with courage and leadership. George Washington 's first notable feat was being elected as general in the Revolutionary War.
Huckabee has the experience that is needed to be president. He has great ideas that will improve the government 's systems.

At the end of signing a huge signature on the Declaration of Independence, John Hancock said, “There, I guess King George will be able to read that without his spectacles!” John Hancock changed the course of a war that was bound to be won by the British, and did so in a manner of elegance that could not be compared. Some would even argue that his role in the Revolutionary War was as significant as George Washington or Benjamin Franklin. Born on January 12, 1737, in what is now Quincy, Massachusetts, John Hancock was orphaned at a young age and taken in by his uncle, Thomas Hancock. A wealthy businessman and successful merchant, Thomas Hancock groomed John to one day take over his shipping business.
The United States has had very many heros that served as our presient. Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and George Washington are all heros and were a very important part of our society. They all did everything they could do to make this world a better place, yet they all had their differences in going about doing it. But i will have to say that the strongest president was Thomas Jefferson. Thomas was one of the smartest men to live and not only was he very smart but he had a desire to constantly learn new things.
Such as the following. After John Fitzgerald Kennedy was out of office in between elections, he was still focused on the economic and political issues and conflicts in the US. While JFK was still alive, he remodeled America’s politics. Albeit his inexperience before entering office is thought process and decision making was reasonable and becoming of a rookie. There was the reasoning behind him wanting to end the war, however is was not the right way to end the war and there were many refutations to the decision.
