Event Details:Join Dr. Peter Henriques Thursday, October 8 at 7 p.m. via Zoom as he discusses the Election of 1800 and his new book, First and Always: A New Portrait of George Washington.
On any short list of pivotal moments in American history, the election of 1800 will always have a central place. It is the first modern political campaign in our history. History does not repeat itself, but it tends to be repetitious because human nature repeats itself, and one can find surprising parallels between that election and our current election. Adding to its appeal, the election of 1800 involved larger than life figures – Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, and Aaron Burr.

Peter R. Henriques is Professor of History, Emeritus, from George Mason University and author of Realistic Visionary: A Portrait of George Washington. His new book, First and Always: A New Portrait of George Washington will be released in September.
The lecture is sponsored by Gadsby’s Tavern Museum, part of the Office of Historic Alexandria.
