introductory film shown at Mount Vernon new visitors center and museum
31 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

Saw this on the third day of opening of the new Mount Vernon visitors and education center. This is an attempt to educate people who come to Mount Vernon with little knowledge of our first president (some surveys showed people thought he fought in the Civil War, etc.) It was extremely well done and shows how museums are providing top-flight productions. I know a passable bit about the era, living in Alexandria, Virgina and serving as a docent and history buff. It is well worth seeing, as are all the new (and old) possibilities at this historic site. Sebastian Roche does a great job, portraying Washington -- the attempt here is to show visitors that Washington didn't always look like the old man on the dollar bill. He was a vigorous soldier, fighter and loving husband, a handsome young man who could go for days on the frontier without faltering. He was known to have been able to ride all day without fatigue, etc. This shows in the film and I think it does what the Mount Vernon historical association wanted to accomplish.
