Dumb Witnesses: Relics of George Washington at the Massachusetts Historical Society
Presented by Massachusetts Historical Society at Massachusetts Historical Society
January 30, 2013
From the beginnings of the Massachusetts Historical Society, George Washington has been the subject of fascination and veneration. What does the Society’s early collection of Washington artifacts and documents say about the founding of the MHS—and about the image of Washington in the early Republic? Join MHS Librarian Peter Drummey for a conversation about what documents and artifacts can tell us about the characters, events, and issues of the past, as well as the role of the MHS in documenting the rich history of our state and nation.
