Immigrants who had lived 2 years in the US and one year in the state of residence could become citizens. This excluded slaves, native americans, indentured servants, and Asains.

George Washington ratified the Bill of Rights in 1791. Anti-federalists argued that the constitution, which took place of the articles of confederation, lacked individual and state rights. Citizens were worried that the federal government would have too much control. The Bill of Rights ensured that the people would be given their basic freedoms and allowed for the US to progress as a unified nation.

George Washington issued the Neutrality Proclamation in 1793. The Neutrality Proclamation declared that during the French and British affair, the United States would remain neutral. This was issued to refrain from war with Britain, but left the French feeling betrayed. However, it was a good decision by Washington, because The US was too weak to engage in another war.

George Washington supported Jay's Treaty in 1795. Jay's Treaty was created to settle disagreements between the US and Britain.The terms of the treaty resulted in the removal of British troops in the Northeast, and the compensation of impressed American ships.

Washington delivered his Farewell Address in 1796, and it was arguably one of the most important ideas he gave throughout his presidency. Washington addresses how important the unity of the country is, he reminds his countrymen that the constituition is an excellent way to ensure the integrity of the country if the people decide to change the government to best benefit themselves, and lastly, to refrain from the formation of political parties because they lead to corruption and opposition against the betterment of the country.
