Loved the movie at end how we almost lost the Revolutionary War. I was here about 15yrs ago, Mt Vernon has really stepped up their game with the ‘new’ museum etc.

Robert was great! Very low key. Have a bunch of information. Plenty of time to see Mt Vernon. Quick driving tour of Alexandria, but still fun to see.
