PROGRAM FOR DEDICATION CEREMONY
Pictured is Frank S. Walker as he spoke to the Williamsburg Chapter Sons of the American Revolution in a zoom meeting on October 10, 2020. His topic was “George Washington and His Women” – four ladies who contributed enormously to the development of the George Washington of history. The four were his mother, Mary Ball; his wife Martha Custis; his sister, Betty Washington; and his good friend, Sally Fairfax. Much new and very interesting information was presented on the ladies and their influence. Walker is a historian associated with the Orange County Historical Society and the James Madison Museum.
