1796 United States Presidential Election

"Domestically, two political parties have emerged in the fight over the John Jay Treaty. Abroad, the French Revolution tests our relationship with both France and Britain. Amid this tension and fragmenting of relative political unity, President George Washington intends to retire. Who can unify the nation with General Washington stepping down?"

- Election Blurb.
