Before serving as President, he was a delegate to the Continental Congress from 1778 through 1780. He found the Congress to be dishonorable and self-interested, as he noted in a letter to Thomas Jefferson at the end of his first term, and was deeply concerned about the state of the war effort.
In January 1788, Congress elected him as its president. During his term the US Constitution was finally ratified.
