George Washington's America: APS Program, 427 Chestnut St.
Philadelphia, PA on Wednesday, November 17, 5:30PM
Please join us for this unique presentation as Historian Barnet Schecter transports us to the scenes of Washington's most dramatic exploits and remarkable achievements--from the French and Indian War to the American Revolution to the highest elected office in the new republic. From his teens until his death, maps were always central to Washington's work, and after his death, many of his most important maps were bound into an atlas that remained in his family for many years. Accompanied also by slides, Schecter crafts a singular portrait of our first Founding Father.
Please note: This program will be held at the American Philosophical Society, Franklin Hall, 427 Chestnut St.
