    • Alexander Hamilton's American Revolution
      March 15 — September 16, 2018

      Alexander Hamilton joined the American forces in the spring of 1775 at the age of eighteen, a recent immigrant from St. Croix who had quickly embraced the cause of American independence. During the Revolutionary War, Hamilton witnessed the horrors and heroism of battle as a field commander, and the challenges of maintaining a national army as the principal aide-de-camp to George Washington. As an original member of the Society of the Cincinnati and, later, its second president general, Hamilton supported his fellow veterans' mission to ensure the Revolution would not be forgotten. This exhibition explores how Hamilton's participation in the struggle for American independence helped to shape his vision for the new nation and its institutions.

The speaker from The Society of the Cincinnati will talk about The Hamilton Exhibition and Associated Upcoming Programming This Spring and Summer. The National Park service reps will give updates on the Washington Monument, Lincoln and Jefferson Memorial projects. The National Cathedral reps will present the latest information on the 2018 tour changes (and will stay after the meeting to answer individual questions). Maricar Donato and Mariam Tarasashvili from the Embassy of Georgia will present information about the January 2019 WFTGA Conference in Tbisili, Georgia.
