huzzah Dr. Peter Henriques delves into the politics of George Washington at his lecture on October 25, Can’t We Get Along? Washington’s Break with Two Virginias. While many people look back to the “good old days” when everyone got along, it is interesting to note that over time Washington completely severed his relationship with five famous Virginians. In this lecture, the focus will be on James Madison and James Monroe. Professor Henriques will examine these breaks and see if there is a common thread between them. Doors open at 7, lecture begins at 7:30pm. $12 per person, $10 for GTMS members and volunteers.
