The Old Barracks Museum's Fall 2019 Lecture Series presents, "Young Washington: How Wilderness and War Forged America's Founding Father," by Peter Stark. Finalist, 2019 George Washington Book Prize. A new, brash, and unexpected view of the president we thought we knew, from the bestselling author of Astoria. Two decades before he led America to independence, George Washington was a flailing young soldier serving the British Empire in the vast wilderness of the Ohio Valley. Naïve and self-absorbed, the twenty-two-year-old officer accidentally ignited the French and Indian War—a conflict that opened colonists to the possibility of an American Revolution.  Free Admission
