    * Alexander Hamilton= Treasury

    * Thomas Jefferson= Secretory of State

    * Henry Knox= Secretary of War

    * Edmund Randolph= Attorney General

    John Jay was the first Chief Justice of the United States, appointed on October 19, 1789 by President George Washington. Jay served on the Court until the end of June, 1795, when he resigned to become Governor of New York.

    The Supreme Court was first called to assemble on February 1, 1790, in the Merchants Exchange Building in New York City, then the Nation's Capital, but travel impediments prevented the Court from meeting until the next day, February 2, 1790. Some of the Associate Justices, such as John Rutledge, didn't attend the meeting.

    The first Supreme Court comprised only six Justices:

    Hamilton's supporters became known as Federalists and Jefferson's as Republicans.

    The Proclamation of Neutrality was a formal announcement issued by United States President George Washington on April 22, 1793, declaring the nation neutral in the conflict between France and Great Britain. It threatened legal proceedings against any American providing assistance to warring countries. The Proclamation led to the Neutrality Act of 1794.

    hope this helped.
