Description

Once Washington established the Presidency, his successors faced challenges brought about by a changing nation and the changing nature of American politics.

Still others had redefinition forced on them. We will continue our look into the development of the Office of the President in these sessions. There is no need to have attended the first segment to enjoy this one!
