FirstBank Routing Number
The Founder, the Directors, and Company of the U.S. Bank, generally known as the U.S. First Bank, was a national bank chartered by the U.S. Congress on February 25, 1791, for a period of twenty years. The Bank of North America, the country’s first de facto central bank, followed. The creation of the Bank of the United States was part of a three-part expansion of federal fiscal and monetary control, along with a federal mint and excise tax, promoted by first Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton argued that a national bank was required to preserve and develop the reputation of the country, and to develop the handling of the United States government’s financial business under the newly enacted Constitution.
