General Washington could be classified with multiple leadership styles including leadership by example, a transformational leader or even a servant leader. He is considered by many to be one of the most influential leaders of all time and certainly was one of our greatest presidents. Looking first at his leadership style of leading by example, he knew that he had to set the way for the people of the United States to follow for years after his presidency and establish a norm for how the country should be governed. He has high expectations of the young country, and it was said that he “…carried a vision into his presidency and sought to ensure a well-ordered government based on both laws and reason. He believed that through using reason and being open to various viewpoints, citizens could arrive at proper laws and policies to ensure peace, prosperity, and happiness for the country (McNeilly, 168).” Washington was intelligent enough to know the importance of a strong leader in the early years of this new country.
It was a large-scale public works construction agency headed by Secretary of the Interior Harold L. Ickes created in 1933 by the National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA), and it provided employment, stabilized purchasing power, and helped revive the economy. above $4 billion dollars were spent for about 34 thousand different construction projects such as public buildings, highways, bridges, sewage systems, hospitals, schools, and dams for water and power.

Building public housing for the poor people of cities was also one of the goals the New Deal had and the PWA was at the heart of that. Unfortunately, not enough affordable housing was created in 4 and a half years.
He is often thought of as one of the most popular presidents. Andrew Jackson was democratic in many ways; he was a supporter of the common people, he helped the “transfer of national power from the country house to the farmhouse” (Document B), and be believed in the power of the people and “that all offices – whether appointed or elected – must ultimately fall under the absolute control of the people” (Document D). By believing and supporting in the people, Jackson won the favor over many americans. During his presidency, Jackson made many statements about offices and how long their terms should be and how they should be elected by the people, rather than by other offices (Document D). This won the favor of the public in many ways, mainly due to the fact that they saw a president who was representing them, rather than only wanting to put themselves into a higher position.
