Virtual Author Series featuring David O. Stewart
This Sunday, March 12 at 2 pm, join author David O. Stewart as he talks about his award-winning book George Washington: The Political Rise of America’s Founding Father during a new Virtual Author Series.
Stewart explores the political education that made Washington a master politician—and America’s most essential leader. From Virginia’s House of Burgesses, where Washington learned the craft and timing of a practicing politician, to his management of local government as a justice of the Fairfax County Court, to his eventual role in the Second Continental Congress and his grueling generalship in the American Revolution, Washington perfected the art of governing, earned trust, and built bridges. The lessons in leadership he absorbed would prove invaluable during the early years of the republic as he fought to unify the new nation.
Online pre-registration is required. Register by 5 pm this Friday, March 10 HERE.

America’s First Freedom Rider: Elizabeth Jennings, Chester A. Arthur, and the Early Fight for Civil Rights
Warren County Historical Society to host online Women’s History Month program about America’s First Freedom Rider.
Wednesday, March 15, 2023 at 7 pm via Zoom.
For many, the civil rights movement began with Rosa Parks’ brave stand against segregation in 1954. However, few people realize that the right for African Americans to even ride in streetcars was earned a hundred years before that in a landmark civil rights case here in New York City.
Author and Historian Jerry Mikorenda breathes life into this struggle with America’s First Freedom Rider: Elizabeth Jennings, Chester A. Arthur, and the Early Fight for Civil Rights (Rowman & Littlefield, 2020). Using rare period photos and lithographs, in a 30-to-40-minute PowerPoint presentation, followed by a Q&A, the author recreates “The World of Elizabeth Jennings” by exploring the sights and people of old New York as this momentous battle with the Third Avenue Railroad unfolded.
