The First Conspiracy: The Secret Plot to Kill George Washington
Presented by Josh Mensch*
In 1776, an elite group of soldiers were handpicked to serve as George Washington’s bodyguards. In the months leading up to the Revolutionary War, these trusted soldiers took part in a deadly plot against the most important member of the military: Washington himself. Drawing on extensive research, Mensch will discuss how Washington not only defeated the most powerful military force in the world, but also uncovered the secret plot against him.
