George Washington was first in line to do many things that others had not accomplished. George Washington was the first to serve as a general against the British army. He led the colonial army to victory beating the British and gaining their independence. Washington was also our first president. After the Constitution was approved in June 1788, he was elected what we know him now our first president. He was also first to win all the votes from the electoral college. George Washington is first in the hearts of his people and we salute him from this day on.
John Adams was in the situation between France and Britain. Adams established the U.S navy and ordered the first warships to be built. John Adams didn't want to take sides so the French attacked U.S ships. Adams sent diplomats to France to make peace. France wanted money so in the 1800s Adams sent more diplomats and it was a success. John Adams saved the U.S from going to war.
Thomas Jefferson was a great thinker and was needed to the U.S. Jefferson with good with architect, inventor, framer. He wasn't comfortable with speaking outloud so he usually wrote his thoughts down. They asked Jefferson to write the Declaration Of Independence. Thomas Jefferson joeted his thougthts in the written document. In 1776 it was published . Thomas Jefferson defined liberty through his words printed on the new document.
James Madison felt that the new country needed a written plan. Madison wanted the government to be strong enough to protect peoples rights but not strong enough to take way peoples freedoms. He was a strong thinker so he wrote many parts to the Constitution including the Bill Of Rights. James Madison was only thirty-six when he wrote the Bill Of Rights. Of being an expert on British laws he had a good sense of constructing the laws for the new independent country. James Madison did something that was most difficult which was convincing the people to agree. Madison accomplished his main goals in his term of his presidency.

He wanted Europe to mind their own business and leave North and South America alone. The wanted to feel as if they were on there own and not in control by Britain. James Monroe helped signify the independence of the U.S.
John Quincy Adams was a good public service man. John was the son of the second president so he got a close look at the life of a political leader. In 1789 John Quincy was a diplomat in Europe during the French Revolution. He also was a U.S ambassador from 1809 to 1817. Adams was secretary of state when James Monroe came to office. Later he became a representative in Congress after being president. John Quincy Adams is educated with a political mind.
Andrew Jackson thought differently than others. He saw the world differently and thought the government favored the wealthy. The People loved Jackson and he was a very powerful man. He argued with Congress. He also didn't trust the rich. Any law that would be passed by Congress implied to the wealthy Andrew Jackson would disagree. Andrew Jackson was known as King Andrew with the power he had defending the citizens.
Martin Van Buren had a crisis on his hands that needed to be handled and the people never forgave him again. Andrew Jackson the president before Martin Van Buren, had put the bank of the United States out of business which created a commotion for new president Martin. When Martin Van Buren was elected president all banks started failing. Many people lost their jobs and voters were unhappy. People blamed Martin Van Buren for the economical depression. He hoped to be president again but lost and applied for office once more in 1848 but lost. Martin Van Buren had his time but couldn't handle it in the best way.
What most people remember about Willliam Henry Harrison was his campaign slogan and how short his time in office was. The first time he ran for office in 1836 he lost against Martin Van Buren but when he ran again his slogan on his posters were becoming popular. He wrote "Tippecanoe and Tyler, too" on his campaign posters. He wrote his nickname on the posters that he got when he won a battle against the Shawnee in Indianan near a river called Tippecanoe. Right when Harrison was elected president he went outside on a cold, wet day to say a speech and caught pneumonia. After thirty-one days he died. William Henry Harrison never had his time to experience his presidency.
John Tyler was the only president that was to be ever named the enemy to the U.S. He was popular with southern voters. He wanted to spread slavery in new territories. Congressman made it difficult for him. They threw him out of the Whig party to make it hard for John Tyler to run for election again. John Tyler kept working on things he believed in. John Tyler did his time in office only to replace President Harrison before him.
James Knox Polk was a strong leader. in 1846 James sent troops to Texas with the disagreement over the borders. This led war with Mexico. He won terriotory from New Mexico to California. He aslo got Britain to agree that the U.S would own many land like Oregon, Idaho, Washington and many parts of Montanan and Wyoming. James K. Polk had delivered his campaign promises.

This compromise in 1852 set laws that involed the slaves. Milliard fillimore was one of the presidents to promote slavery.
Frankiln Pierce had started his term as a sad and tired man and all things went wrong. Franklin Pierce signed into a law the Kansas- Nebraska Act.

Franklin Pierce led the United States to rivalry.
James Buchanan left the nation on the edge of war. Buchanan couldnt succeed bringing the nation together. He wanted Kansas as a slave state. Kansas citizens strongly diagreed to becoming a slave state. Some people thought that James Buchanan tried to sneak Kansas as a slave state. Kansas voted for a pro-slavery state Constitution.
