After the Treaty of Paris was signed in 1783, George Washington wrote that Americans would from this period be considered as Actors on a most conspicuous Theatre, which seems to be peculiarly designed by Providence for the display of human greatness and felicity. What did Washington seem to be saying about Manifest Destiny, as American ambition came to be known in the 19th century? What kind of stage do Americans live on? What does Washington’s quotation say about the United States responsibilities around the world?

Washington was saying that the US was to be an example to the world that our chance to form a political system that would allow the average person be as powerful as the elite when it came to living one’s life with all the freedoms that a person could in terms of not having to pay outrageous amounts of taxes for the elite but little for the common man. Further, the political system would ideally work for the people in terms roads, canals so that goods could move farther and quicker. The form of government was for people to determine who would represent them the in Congress, and if they weren’t satisfied they could change their representative at the ballot box. It was a unique form of government because it has lasted some 200 yrs without the freedoms being eroded.
