Talk with the people who knew George Washington best and see how he is viewed through the eyes of his family, friends, and servants. Character interpreters portraying Washington's granddaughter, personal physician, enslaved manservant and others will give you a first-person narrative of life with the Father of Our Country. You might even gain a new perspective on the General!




Offered select days at 2:00 PM and 3:00 PM, the program lasts 30 minutes. Consult our Events Calendar and Today at Mount Vernon for programming times.
