George Washington’s Farewell Address

Washington’s Farewell Address is a letter written by American President George Washington as a valedictory to “friends and fellow-citizens” after 20 years of public service to the United States. First published as The Address of Gen. Washington to the People of America on His Declining the Presidency of the United States in the American Daily Advertiser on September 19, 1796, it is a classic statement of republicanism, warning Americans of the political dangers which they must avoid if they are to remain true to their values. It was almost immediately reprinted in newspapers throughout the country, and later in pamphlet form.
