独立及总统职位

战争结束后,华盛顿希望能自军中退休并返回弗农山庄;然而,1789年时,全体选举人一致通过并决定由乔治华盛顿来担任美国的第一位总统。因为此为无上荣耀而且他也觉得他对他的国家负有重大的义务及责任,因此决定接任此一职务。他于416日离开弗农山庄并于430日抵达于纽约市的就职典礼。当他站在联邦大厅的阳台上宣誓时,群众开始欢呼。他的第一任内阁成员包括担任国务卿的汤玛斯杰弗逊、财政部长亚历山大汉密尔顿、作战部长亨利诺克斯及司法部长艾德蒙伦道夫。
 

After the war was over, Washington hoped he would be able to retire and return to Mount Vernon. Instead, in 1789, the electors unanimously voted George Washington the first president of the United States. Because it was such an honor, and he felt a great duty to his country, he accepted. He left Mount Vernon on April 16 and arrived in New York City on April 30 for his inauguration. As he took his oath standing on the balcony of Federal Hall, a crowd broke into cheers. The members of his first Cabinet included Thomas Jefferson as secretary of state, Alexander Hamilton as secretary of the treasury, Henry Knox as secretary of war, and Edmund Randolph as attorney general.
