Tickets · Free!
Robert P. Watson, professor of American history at Lynn University, discusses his book on the role of George Washington in the creation of the District of Columbia. The first president is remembered for leading the Continental Army to victory, presiding over the Constitutional Convention and forging a new nation, but less well known is the story of his involvement in the establishment of a capital city and how it nearly tore the United States apart. The talk will last approximately one hour on Zoom. Registration is required for this free event.
