George Washington elected first president of United States.

1789 · The United States Constitution

Originally comprising seven articles, the United States Constitution is the backbone of the law in the Nation. The first three articles talk about the separation of powers, dividing the government into three branches: the legislative, the executive, and the judicial. Articles Four, Five and Six describe the what each state governments have rights to do, how the states and the federal government should act in their relationship, and how the constitutional amendments are shared between all states. The Seventh Article explains and establishes the procedure used by the thirteen States to ratify it. It is regarded as the oldest written and codified national constitution in force. Since the Constitution came into force in 1789, it has been amended 27 times, including an amendment to repeal a previous one.

Name Meaning

English: topographic name for someone who lived by an ash tree, a variant of Ash by misdivision of Middle English atten ash ‘at the ash’, or a habitational name from any of the many places in England and Wales named Nash, from this phrase, as for example Nash in Buckinghamshire, Herefordshire, or Shropshire. The name was established from an early date in Wales and Ireland.

Jewish: possibly an Americanized form of one or more similar (like-sounding) Jewish surnames.

History: The surname Nash was taken to Ireland from England or Wales by a family who established themselves in County Kerry in the 13th century, during the second wave of Anglo-Norman settlement. — Abner Nash (c. 1740–86), governor of NC, was of Welsh origin, his parents having emigrated to VA from Wales in 1730. His brother Francis (c. 1742–77) was a general in the Continental army; the city of Nashville, TN, was named in his honor.
