Mount Vernon

This week, we discussed the novel Democracy by Henry Adams. In one scene, Madeleine Lee and her entourage of admirers travel by boat to Mount Vernon and discuss the decline of the republic since the days of George Washington. Today, the DC group recreated that scene, cruising down the river on the Spirit of Mount Vernon, touring the estate and home, and feeling the spirit of Washington.
