In praise of George Washington

Friday, July 13, 2018 10:49 AM | Peggy McPhillips (Administrator)

James T. (Jim) Guy, oldest son of former NHS President and lecture series founder Louis Guy, made our Second Wednesday program on July 11 a memorable one, and left all of us wanting more.

Appearing as George Washington, Jim spoke to a near-capacity audience, bringing little-known stories about the future president's early years, and the many twists and turns his life took before he found the path that would lead him to military and political fame, and his role as Father of His Country.  

Jim promises to return in 2019 to bring us the "rest of the story." Many, many thanks to Jim - your dad would be so proud!

We welcome you to contact us!  The Norfolk Historical Society maintains space at Historic Fort Norfolk (c. 1810).  We are also available via mail, e-mail, and social media.
