Event description

Description


Current events have brought the word “impeachment” into the news. Many are aware of the three Presidents who faced the process, two who were tried and acquitted by the Senate and one who resigned rather than face the proceedings. Over the course of our history, there have also been requests in the House of Representatives for impeachment investigations into a number other Presidents. And in addition to the two Presidents there have been 17 impeachments in House mostly for federal judges, eight of whom were removed from their positions. The National Portrait Gallery provides an opportunity to view the portraits of all the Presidents as well as other 19th century figures that played a role in the first presidential impeachment.

This is a history tour that will be looking at impeachment as part of our national story and we will discuss past events that may have parallels in the present.

And because the other word being thrown around these days in Washington is "baseball," we will have a few historical references to that as well. Please note that we are an independent, non-partisan, non-political organization and all are welcome.

Your host will be Harry, who has led and assisted in leading various tours around the area for the last five years, including the National Portrait Gallery.
