A Legacy of Faith and Duty
Never before in the course of these United States has there been a greater need to shore up the foundations of our nation's character and spiritual resolve. Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, admonished us to "remove not the ancient landmark, which your fathers have set."
Our forefathers' strong faith in God and their personal sacrifice were the pillars upon which our republic was founded. To allow America's Christian heritage to be hidden or removed from the halls of history would be a mockery of their faith in Almighty God. As stated by George Washington, the father of our nation, "The Hand of providence has been so conspicuous in all this, that he must be worse than an infidel that lacks faith, and more than wicked, that has not gratitude enough to acknowledge his obligations."
The George Washington Society seeks to cultivate an appreciation for our nation's early history and Christian heritage for the benefit of future generations.
The Northwest Colonial Festival, sponsored by the George Washington Society, will help to facilitate a reenactment of the Battles of Lexington and Concord on the grounds around the George Washington Inn®, a west coast replica of Mount Vernon.
