Following European exploration, the United States history becomes a timeline of political reformation, national unification and industrial growth. The Declaration of Independence adopted on July 4th, 1776 had allowed the new nation a sense of freedom, and new operations of government setting them apart from other nations and unifying the states as one. In so doing so, this led to an array of legal doctrine, and conventions that collectively formulated the Constitution of the United States. To serve and protect the Constitution was the first elected president George Washington in April 30th, 1789, who had organized the national government, and paved the way for inspiring presidents leading up to the current history of the United States.
