"The Presidents"


After viewing the film, "The Presidents," you should now have a clearer idea of the influence of the first three American presidents. Reply to this post by identifying 3 significant facts EACH about George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson that you recorded in your notebooks from the film. (You should have 9 total facts.) Remember, your facts should portray Washington's, Adams', and Jefferson's influences on the early government, the presidency, and American policy. (In other words, do not write that George Washington enjoyed dancing and interior decorating in his free time.)
