Symposium from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. — $25 (students free), pre-registration required.

The annual George Washington Symposium addresses early Alexandria and the parallel life of its most famous home town hero. This year, the Symposium covers the period 1793-1797; President Washington’s second term. How was the world accepting the new country? And in the midst of the process of inventing this new country and establishing precedents, how much time could and did the President devote to international relations? Which countries were ready to deal with the new United States, and for what reasons? We explore – just what was the Whiskey Rebellion and what were its political implications? We’ll learn about the significance of Washington’s Farewell Address. And how did George Washington keep track of what was going on at his beloved Mount Vernon? What new images do we have of him during this period?
