In 1790, America's first president, Benjamin Franklin, dies in the capitol at Philadelphia in the middle of his first term. His vice-president, John Adams, assumed the office of president, but the young nation was thrown into turmoil. Many urged General George Washington, hero of the revolution, to take power and rule as king, but he was uninterested in politics. He told his followers to support the new president, forestalling anarchy in Philadelphia.
