Virtual - The Commanding Presence of George Washington
Wednesday, February 177:00—8:00 PMZoomIndian Valley Public Library100 E. Church Ave, Telford, PA, 18969
Throughout history, an Army's ability to fight and win a war is not solely dependent on weapons and training. It also rests on the attitude of its commander. As befitting a military hero, George Washington cuts a formidable presence. A contemporary in the 1750s described him as "measuring six feet two inches in his stockings and weighing 175 pounds”. By the time he became president, the 57-year-old Washington was certainly less agile, but even more imposing at upward of 200 pounds. By then, he had survived an array of life-threatening situations and baptism by fire in the battlefields of the French and Indian War to the harsh winter of Valley Forge, rendering him a larger-than-life figure.
