Lecture: What Made George Washington Tick?
|Title:||Lecture: What Made George Washington Tick?|
|Date & Time:||Thu Nov 18, 2021 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM|
201 S. Washington St.
|Event Details:||While recognizing him as the most important figure in American History, Professor Peter Henriques takes issue with the traditional image of George Washington as a selfless leader. Rather, his portrait of George Washington reveals a more complicated - and interesting - man who was both self-effacing and wildly ambitious, with a desire for public adulation that he never acknowledged, perhaps even to himself. Dr. Henriques, Professor Emeritus of History from George Mason University, will be available to sign his newest book, First and Always: A New Portrait of George Washington. The evening's lecture was inspired by one of its chapters.
Doors open at the Lyceum at 7p, lecture and streaming will begin at 7:30p. Masks are required for in-person attendance, regardless of vaccine status.
|Fees:||$12 per person, $10 OHA volunteer or $6 virtual only.|
|Audience:||Anyone may attend|
