George Washington (the 1st President of the United States) was in power from April 30, 1789 - March 4, 1797. Washington proved an able administrator. An excellent delegator and judge of talent and character, he held regular cabinet meetings to debate issues before making a final decision. In handling routine tasks, he was "systematic, orderly, energetic, solicitous of the opinion of others but decisive, intent upon general goals and the consistency of particular actions with them." He died on December 14th 1799 at the age of 67 in Mount Vernon, Virginia, United States and was succeeded by his Vice President John Adams.

Who was the US President in the year 1743?

Nobody, not even George Washington. Everybody knows that because George Washington was President in 1789. While the previous answer is correct on saying there wasn't a president at the time, the answer lacks in the history of the office of the president. The first person elected to the office was Peyton Randolph in 1774 under the Continental Congress. He left office a month later, to come back and be re-elected four days later. There were 6 men who also held the office while the Continental Congress existed, to include people who are famous in history for other things. One example would be John Hancock. When an actual government system was established, it was done so under the Articles of Confederation. Under said articles, there were another 7 men who held the office of president. The list of men included Elias Boudinot from Maryland and John Hancock (again) from Massachusetts. Under both the Continental Congress and the Articles of Confederation the office was held for a year at a time. The shortest term was, as you might guess, four days by Henry Middleton when Peyton Randolph took leave back to Virginia during his term. Most historians consider John Hanson to be the first President of the United States because Peyton Randolph, and others in the Continental Congress held the office before a government system was in place. Either way, George Washington was the 8th or 14th.

Who was the first president to serve eight full years?

Thomas Jefferson was first to be in office a full eight years, from 4 March 1801 to 4 March 1809. George Washington , the first president, served two full terms, but his first term started late and began on April 30 , instead of the intended March 4, date due to delays in the government set up, in this very first presidential election. Therefore his first term was a little short of four years and he did not serve a full eight years.
