Nathaniel Philbrick: In Search of Washington and His Legacy
American Ancestors/NEHGS, the Boston Public Library, and Porter Square Books present the celebrated author (Mayflower, In the Heart of the Sea, In the Hurricane’s Eye) with his latest work revealing the dynamic history of our country.

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.
