contrasts

  • When the Second Continental Congress named Washington the  Commander in Chief during the Revolutionary War he ultimately led his  troops to evident victory, eventually resolving British down a move that led to the surrender of  British General Cornwallis'sat Yorktown. In comparison, John Adams served as a diplomat during the Revolutionary War, working in France and Holland before returning to the United States to work as Washington's Vice President. therefore george washington is seen as more of a millitary leader as opposed to john adams.

  • being the first president of the United States, George Washington expanded his territory to the West  both militarily and physically. being the  president, he was disappointed to see two American political parties beginning to form by the end of his first term; he subsequently retired at the end of his second. Meanwhile, Adams privately complained of the insignificance of his role as Vice President. When he became President, he spent much of his time negotiating the war between the French and the British, the former refusing to meet with American ambassadors. He finally succeeded in having the French receive an American envoy.

their relevance today

with todays political polarization washington would most likely be at war with the east following the unrest that obama administration has witnessed with mixed reactions, most unlikely would john adams. adam would likely expand his diplomatic ideologies in combating opposition politics and foster peace treaties overseas in a move to safeguard his personality. in such a case washington would be aimed to safeguard american interests overseas at all cost without negotiating for a democratic process
