The First Conspiracy: The Secret Plot to Kill George Washington

Evening Lecture Presented by Josh Mensch

George Washington

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.
