On this day in 1689 George Washington concluded the first presidential tour. Washington who had been inaugurated in March of 1789 as the first POTUS took a four week tour of the northern states by stagecoach. Washington of course received enthusiastic welcomes all along his tour. Two years later he would go on a tour of the southern states. George Washington ranks #1 on my Greatest POTUS list.
