George Washington Here & Gone

Jeff Wood will present a talk at First Presbyterian Church of Carlisle on George Washington, Carlisle and Cumberland Valley, and the Whiskey Rebellion of 1794. Why was President Washington here? How did his visit with thousands of soldiers go over with the local populace? What message did he intend to send to the rebellious people of the frontier? What were the consequences of his visit? All welcome! Sponsored by Historic Carlisle as part of a weekend of events commemorating the Whiskey Rebellion.
