    Lecture: Infamous Scribblers: President George Washington and the Press. Harry Truman once said "the only thing new is the history we do not know."

Washington's attitude and relationship with the press is another way of better understanding our remarkable first President. Doors open at 7:00pm and lecture begins at 7:30.
