The primary source in this week’s module, Washington’s Farewell Address,(file:///C:/Users/17552/AppData/Local/Packages/Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe/TempState/Downloads/Washington’s%20Farewell%20Address%20(1).pdf) is our lengthiest primary source of the term. I have created this assignment to help you understand important aspects of the document. Below I have a series of questions related to the primary source.
- What does Washington think about the relation between the American people and the American system of government?
- What does Washington think of sectional interests (“geographical discriminations”)? What does he think about political parties (“the spirit of party”)?
- According to Washington, what kind of relationship should the United States have with foreign powers? Why?
- Based on his address, do you think Washington is a federalist or an anti-federalist? Why?
