The Federalist Era began with George Washingtonís unanimous victory in the Election of 1789, a feat he would duplicate in 1792. An entirely new government and procedures for operating it had to be established. Following up on promises made during ratification, a Bill of Rights was approved by Congress and submitted to the states. Other major events included passage of the Tariff of 1789, consideration of Alexander Hamiltonís Economic Plan, the rise of partisan politics and the Whiskey Rebellion.
A Federalist foreign policy was established by Washington, who later offered advice to his fellow citizens in his Farewell Address.
