Washington had retired to his plantation in Virginia where he expected to quietly live out his years.


When the war ended in 1783, George Washington quietly retired to his Virginia plantation. Washington had been a successful farmer prior to the revolution, was a man of property and means, and fully expected that his work for the new American republic was finished. Washington took no part in the Convention itself.
