What Made George Washington Great?
FREE EVENT, NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED
Thursday, February 15, 7:00 PM
Todd DePastino, Executive Director of the Veteran’s Breakfast Club, will talk broadly about our greatest and mostindispensable Founder, George Washington. It’s not easy to talk about Washington. He didn’t like his private life to be revealed, and he preferred to be remembered as the white marble “Father of the Country,” the man on the dollar bill. But Washington was as fascinating as the other Founders and, unlike the others, his greatness relied not on special talents or abilities, but rather his character.

About 15 years ago, Carleton Young was clearing out his parents’ attic in Pittsburgh and was surprised to discover an enormous collection of letters written by two brothers during the Civil War. He then spent more than a decade visiting battle- fields and researching the two soldiers.
In order to find his family connection to the two soldiers, he later began an extensive research of his own family history. Through that process, he was surprised to discover that he was related to many famous people in American history. He also found that along with the famous and heroic, there were family connections to a few infamous rogues and murderers as well. He has now created a program entitled “Discovering a Family History: From the Famous and Heroic to the Infamous and Notorious.
