Joseph Manca talked about his book, George Washington’s Eye: Landscape, Architecture and Design at Mount Vernon, in which he talks about how the grounds and architecture at Mount Vernon, his Virginia home, reflect the independence and democratic ideals of the young country he led in war and peace. Washington, as Mr. Manca puts it, was building “a new American garden” that rejected European extravagance for what was called a “plain and neat” sensibility more suited to a republic. Mr. Manca spoke at Mount Vernon’s new National Library for the Study of George Washington. close
