We will put a video here on how we celebrated that day.

Cancelled but Resurrected

The original event has been cancelled.

The re-enactors of the 2nd Company of the Virginia Regiment have cancelled due to the George Washington Office Museum being closed for construction work.

.

But !

Since the corner is public and open,

.

Instead of the original planned event,

there will be an impromptu gathering just to honor the day, President’s Day and George Washington’s Birthday and his time here in Winchester VA.

.

This is George Washington’s Birthday – a celebration.

.

Emphasis on his days here during the French and Indian War.

True Story?

See a story about Lightning Striking before Washington was born.

———————————————————————————————

Birth Date Confusion?

February 11, 1731 ?  Or February 22, 1732 ?

.

Why does Washington’s Birthday show 2 different dates for 2 different years?
