In this lecture, Berten will discuss the research behind her novel By His Side, which considers the relationship between George Washington and William Lee, the last three days of Washington’s life, his changing views on slavery, and the concerns those enslaved at Mount Vernon had for Washington’s last will and testament.


This lecture will take place via Zoom. Registration ends at 5:30pm on the day of the lecture.
