Ben Martin, patriotic historian and West Point graduate, continues his series, Important Speeches and Documents of the American Founding. George Washington defined the “servant leader.” Ben analyzes three major events at the end of the American Revolution that emphasizes this concept: Washington quelled a rebellion of his officers in March, 1783; after the signing of the Treaty of Paris and the British left New York, Washington delivered on November 15, 1783 a farewell to his officers in the Long Room inside the Fraunces Tavern in New York (which still stands today) addressing them as “one patriotic band of brothers” and; on December 4th, 1783, Washington resigned his commission in Annapolis, MD, the American Capitol at the time, to go home.
