Washington's First Failure Discussion with Joe Stoltz - Members Livestream
154 views • May 12, 2021
By his death he was "First in War, First in Peace and First in the Hearts of His Countrymen," but what was George Washington's first failure and how did it shape the man he became? Join us for a Member Monday discussion with Dr. Joe Stoltz, Mount Vernon's Director of Leadership Programs. We will explore George Washington's early military career in the Great War for Empire, including Jumonville Glen and the Battle of Fort Necessity, and how those dramatic early events served as a chrysalis for the man who led the Continental Army to Victory in the American War of Independence two decades later.
