Philip G. Smucker - Riding with George: Sportsmanship & Chivalry in the Making of America's First President

Upcoming Event
Saturday, July 22, 2017 at 3:30 pm

George Washington was many things, including an avid equestrian, and this made him formidable as both a hunter and a soldier. In considering this side of the Founder, Smucker, a fifth-great grandnephew of Washington and a research fellow at the National Library for the Study of George Washington at Mount Vernon, retraces his ancestor’s achievements as a surveyor, a sportsman, and a commander. Making the link between sports and war, Smucker also shows how Washington embodied a young gentleman’s athleticism as well as old world chivalry, a combination that set the pace for Washington’s successors.
