Election of 1792

Again, Washington was not thrilled to run for president.  He was ready to retire to his home at Mount Vernon.  But, the times were tumultuous.  France and Britain were at odds, and the South was ever-threatening secession. In the end, Washington remained the president of this new country, winning by unanimous vote.
