Author David O. Stewart spoke at the Fairfax Resolves Chapter’s Spring lunch meeting May 16, discussing his newest book George Washington: The Political Rise of America’s Founding Father. The book touches on the political education of Washington. Stewart shared some of the ways our first president perfected the art of governing and service, earned trust, and built bridges to become a master politician and America's most essential leader.
The chapter also heard from author Mark Lender at the chapter meeting in April. Lender presented his newest book, Cabal! The Plot Against General Washington. This book addresses the “Conway Cabal” that directly challenged General Washington’s leadership of the Continental Army in the Spring of 1778.

Compatriot Brinsfield is a retired Army colonel and chaplain who served as Army Chaplain Corps Historian. He spoke on the history of the chaplaincy during American Revolution.
