VIRTUAL TALK: “Washington’s End” with Jonathan Horn
July 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
The Final Years and Forgotten Struggle
This story begins where most leave off. After eight years as president, George Washington exits the office and enters what would become the most bewildering stage of his life. Surrendering power proved to be more difficult than he imagined and brought his life to an end he never expected. Nor will you. With every page turn of this astonishingly true story, you’ll discover something you never knew about Washington’s forgotten last years: from his return to his farm, to the intrigues, feuds and personal torment that followed. In fact, the statesman who had staked his legacy on withdrawing from public life found himself feuding with his successors and drawn back into military command. This immaculately researched book, powerfully told through the eyes of Washington, his family members, friends, and foes fills a crucial gap in our nation’s history and will forever change the way we view the name Washington.
