Breaking with Two Future Presidents: George Washingtonâ€™s Relationship with James Monroe and James Madison
While many people look back to the "good old days" when everyone was patriotic and got along, it is interesting to note that over time George Washington completely severed his relationship with famous, presidential Virginians: James Madison and James Monroe. Professor Henriques will exam these breaks and see if there is a common thread between them.
$5.00 ticket in addition to Museum admissions, free reservation for CWF employees and volunteers, W&M students and faculty
