George Washington Exhibition to Open at NSSAR Headquarters

 “The Many Faces of George Washington,” a national travelling exhibition that examines the multi-dimensional, real-life man behind the myth, opens at the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution on November 9, 2013 and will be on display through December 16, 2013 at its headquarters on 1000 S. 4th Street, Louisville, KY, 40203. Produced by George Washington’s home, Mount Vernon, in conjunction with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, this exhibition presents the many different facets of Washington’s leadership through dazzling color graphics of paintings, photographs, and iconic objects from the Mount Vernon collections.


“The Many Faces of George Washington” looks at Washington’s leadership in the exhibition’s seven sections: Virginia Childhood, Risk Taker, Realistic Visionary, Wise Decision Maker, Impassioned Learner, Visionary Entrepreneur, and At Home at Mount Vernon.  The exhibition has been made possible by a generous grant from the F.M. Kirby Foundation. 


The NSSAR, in conjunction with the Alexander Hamilton Historical Society, is offering a special event in celebration of the exhibit on November 16, 2013 from
