King

King of Spain, 1759—88; b. 1716.
King of Great Britain in 1760, at age 22, until 1820; b. 1738.
King of France in 1774, at age 19, until 1791, when he was toppled by the French Revolution; 1754—93.

During the war ... Washington thought his way to federalism, long before a Federalist Party existed. He believed in a strong central government, supreme over the states; a strong financial system on the British model, with taxes to fund its debt; a flourishing commerce to create prosperity (and to train seamen for a powerful navy, which would in turn protect shipping); and a strong military. And most officers came out of the experience of the Revolution with the same views.
