“Building a Legacy: George Washington and the Society of the Cincinnati at the American Independence Museum”

October 13, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In the early days post-Revolutionary War, our nation struggled to solidify its government and leadership. Years before the 13 states agreed on a constitution, continental officers rallied to form the Society of the Cincinnati, and appointed its first National President, George Washington. By highlighting items in the American Independence Museum’s impressive collection, Julie will discuss the Society’s founding and General George Washington’s influence on the Society’s structure, as well as the organization of the New Hampshire Society and the continued importance of the Society’s mission and impact today.

Presented by Julie Hall Williams
