Fire and Ice – The Relationship Between George Washington and John Adams

Public History Lecture


For adults.

Peter R. Henriques received his Ph.D. in history from the University of Virginia in 1971 and is Professor of History, Emeritus, from George Mason University.

The first two presidents were great men who made vital contributions to the founding of the United States. Their philosophies and visions for the country were similar and their paths intersected at a number of crucial times. Nevertheless, they often had a strained and distant relationship. Examining that relationship in some detail helps us better understand the character of both of these remarkable men.
