Effective Leadership

  1. Established the idea of cabinet members. It was very effective because we still use it to this day
  2. Signed into law the first copyright law. It was successful, because it protected the author of any “book, map, chart printed in the us” which is vital to the free speech in the U.S.
  3. Vetoed only two bills while in presidency. The first one to keep balance in power. The second one to lighten the cavalry. It Was effective because today we would have many problems with our military and balance in power
