Ben Martin, patriotic historian and West Point graduate, continues his series, Important Speeches and Documents of the American Founding, reviewing three of George Washington’s major speeches. Washington’s First Inaugural speech was given on April 30, 1789, in Federal Hall, New York City, when he became the first President of the United States. Washington’s Farewell Address was a letter published in The Courier of Massachusetts on September 19, 1796, to announce his unexpected retirement. The dangers of foreign influence on domestic affairs, divisive party politics and the rule of law are major points in his letter. Ben concludes with eulogies of Washington by Lord Byron, Abraham Lincoln and Major General Harry Lee. Washington loved his country, his God and the citizens of his country.
