GMALL Presents – The Indian World of George Washington

August 1, 2023 @ 5:30pm-7:00pm


Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Colin Calloway, Dartmouth College Professor of History, to talk about the Indian World of George Washington. George Washington’s place in the foundations of the Republic remains unrivalled. His life story–from his beginnings as a surveyor and farmer, to colonial soldier in the Virginia Regiment, leader of the Patriot cause, commander of the Continental Army, and finally first president of the United States–reflects the narrative of the nation he guided into existence. Yet American history has largely forgotten what Washington himself knew clearly: that the new Republic’s fate depended less on grand rhetoric of independence and self-governance and more on land–Indian land. This talk will reveal the relationship between Washington and the Native leaders he dealt with intimately across the decades and how Native Americans shaped the life of the man who shaped the nation. Registration for this program is $22 per person. For more information or to register, please call our office at 802-867-0111 or visit www.greenmtnacademy.org.
