Karl Watson, on the board of directors for the George Washington House in Barbados, spoke about George Washington’s diary from a trip to Barbados in 1751, which gives a detailed account of his only journey outside of Colonial America. A young bachelor traveling with his brother, Lawrence, he survived a serious case of smallpox while on the island, an experience with later implications during the Revolutionary War. This talk was part of a symposium on the places where the first president lived and visited. It was recorded at Washington’s Mount Vernon, Virginia home. close
