General George Washington will appear at the Medford Historical Society on Thursday evening, Oct. 6 at 7:30 p.m., brought to life by impersonator Samuel Davis. Davis is known for his striking resemblance to the General and for his meticulous research into Colonial life.
Refreshments will follow the presentation. The event will be held at the Medford Friends Meetinghouse located at 14 Union Street in Medford. Admission is free and all are welcome.
George Washington began to make a name for himself as a young soldier. His renown soared when he led the Continentals Army to victory in the Revolutionary War. Fame and duty summoned him again in 1789 when he was elected president of the new nation. When he died in 1799 a congressman summed up Washington’s life in a phrase reechoed by every American Generation: “First in war, first in peace, first in the hearts of his countrymen.”
Samuel Davis spent the last 36 years teaching science, but he has had a lifelong fascination with history and the American Revolution. He is a longtime Freemason and a member of the Sons of the American Revolution. Sam lives in Chesterfield with his wife and daughter.
