Marshal Ferdinand Foch


Marshal Ferdinand Foch visited Mount Vernon during his tour of the United States in the autumn of 1921 as a special guest of the American Legion. He was accompanied by several other officers of the French and American military. After placing a wreath on Washington’s tomb, he and his party were given a brief tour of the Mansion. Several days earlier, the Superintendent of Mount Vernon, Harrison H. Dodge was asked to send a tree sapling from the grounds of Mount Vernon to New York for Marshal Foch to plant during a ceremony. Mr. Dodge provided a “small White Oak” for the purpose.
