Relive the Revolutionary War
Tuesday, October 15, 2019
Relive and remember The Revolutionary War as interpreted by Washington’s Headquarters volunteer docent Joel Farkas!
This lecture starts with Major George Washington and The French and Indian War. Joel will then go into more detail about The Revolutionary War including "No Taxation without Representation". The Boston Massacre, The Boston Tea Party, The Declaration of Independence and much more! And of course, he will discuss George's Cherry Tree and his teeth!
In addition, Joel will take us on a visual tour of the Ford Mansion (Washington’s Headquarters) looking at some of the historical artifacts in the mansion, their stories, and in some cases their connection to George Washington.
