Washington’s End: The Final Years and Forgotten Struggle
- Date: Tuesday, March 10, 2020
- Time: 12:00 pm
- Location: William G. McGowan Theater
In Washington’s End, historian Jonathan Horn tells the story of George Washington’s final years, beginning with his exiting office after eight years. His plan was to withdraw from public life, but ended up being drawn back into military command, feuding with his successors, and became embittered by partisan criticism. A book signing follows the program.
