|Event Details:||Abigail Adams wrote that George Washington mixed his dignity with an easy affability that created love and reverence. This talk by Dr. Peter Henriques will focus on the "softer side" of George Washington that was an essential part of his personality before 1775 and an essential reason for his success in the years following his appointment at Commander in Chief. Contrary to the traditional view, Washington had a sense of humor, indeed an earthy sense of humor, and enjoyed many forms of recreation and personal pleasures. Doors open at 7, lecture begins at 7:30.
