George Washington’s Mount Vernon and the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington present a special evening program to thank current K—12 teachers from area schools in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.
Join us for a special presentation of Mount Vernon's new animated presentation Now or Never: The Yorktown Campaign followed by a discussion with Robert Shenk, Senior Vice President of Guest Experience, about the creation of this film and Mount Vernon's new resources for teaching about the life, legacy and leadership of George Washington.
Costumed interpreters will join the program to reflect on the story of the 1781 Yorktown campaign, exploring the uncertainties and significance of its ultimate success as an alliance between the Americans and the French to defeat the British.
The evening will conclude with candlelight tours of the Mansion and a reception. Participants will receive a 10% discount in the Shops at Mount Vernon.
Event Check-in begins at 5:00pm
