Who Wore it Better? The Trials of Progress and the Wise 'Future of America'

When: Wed., July 24, 2 p.m. 2019
Join David Brooks, Education Director at Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site, as he looks at the similarities and differences between DeWitt Clinton and George Washington as they navigate the waters of internal improvements in early America. This presentation includes a gallery tour of the Portraits and Landscapes exhibition. Brooks will compare the portraits of both George Washington and DeWitt Clinton - noting their clothing, as well as their expressions - and how each of the two men “wore” success as well as failure in politics, personal life, and especially canal projects.
