Everyone knows of George Washington; few of us know much about his education, businesses, and day-to-day life. Through paintings, photos, and iconic objects from Mount Vernon this exhibit takes a multi-dimensional look at the man behind the many myths.

The exhibit was created by George Washington’s Mount Vernon in conjunction with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, and was made possible by a generous grant from the F.M. Kirby Foundation.

Historian Ethan S. Rafuse examines a tumultuous year in the history of the Army of the Potomac, when Gen. “Fighting” Joe Hooker took over a demoralized and bruised Union force and restored its effectiveness, only to lose the battle of Chancellorsville and be replaced by George Meade.

Rafuse is professor of military history at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth.
