George Washington was a pivotal figure in American history. Upon his death on December 14, 1799, his family, his nation, and the world mourned the loss of a man whose character and leadership were fundamental to establishing a nation.
To commemorate the anniversary of the death of George Washington, Mount Vernon presented LEGACY, a special live program for 150 educators, which commemorated the life and legacy of George Washington, a man who led his country to independence and ensured the stability of a new nation.
