Storyboard Description

The Man Who Would Not Be King he was not motivated primarily by power. As noted earlier, he left public service more than once to settle back into a quiet, unassuming life on his plantation. And when a disgruntled military attempted at one point to install a monarchy with him as king, he fiercely resisted. Washington said in his first inaugural address in New York City: “The magnitude and difficulty of the trust to which the voice of my country called me … could not but overwhelm with despondence one who … ought to be peculiarly conscious of his own deficiencies.
