James Rees spoke live from Mount Vernon, Virginia, the home of George and Martha Washington. He talked about recently-opened facilities at the site and conducted a tour of the new Donald W. Reynolds Education Center and Ford Orientation Center. He also responded to live telephone calls.

Highlighted in the tour were over 200 artifacts telling George Washington’s life story, from his childhood to his military and presidential careers. He also talked about several interactive displays and life-sized statues at the facilities primarily housed underground to preserve the original grounds in a manner similar to that of George Washington’s time. close
