When George Washington became president in 1789, the United States of America was a tentative political experiment. Washington undertook a tour of the ex-colonies to talk to citizens about his new government, and to imbue in them the idea of being Americans.

In his book “Travels with George: In Search of Washington and His Legacy,”” bestselling author Nathaniel Philbrick illustrates George Washington’s unique contribution to the forging of America by retracing Washington’s journey as a new president through the unsure nation made up of thirteen former colonies. Philbrick follows Washington’s route to Mount Vernon; Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island, among many other stops.

Ryan Woods, Executive Vice President and COO of American Ancestors and New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS), will moderate.
