    Actually, if I'm not mistaken, he served out of Philadelphia, as did John Adams for a short stint until the White House was finished. The White House, incidentally, was not originally white, but was painted white to cover up the burn marks from a fire
    I think Philly was the capital during the Revolution, and they switched it to New York when Washington got elected. I know the constitutional convention was held in Philly, I just remember something about New York being our capital at a time. It moved to Washington under Adams, so the only pres who could have served in NY is Washington.

    I think that is correct...Washington was sworn in at the Federal Building in New York...the initial Inaugural Parade was the procession to the swearing in location.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Shockzilla's American History Trivia Question

    The correct answer is:

    George Washington!!!!!

    A little side fact: in 1798, he distilled 11,000 gallons of whiskey on his Mount Vernon property, making him the largest distributor of alcohol in the US at that time...
