When the Historical Society of Montgomery County was founded in 1881, George Washington was declared our “patron saint.”  Our collection holds many books on our first president, particularly on the Battle of Germantown and Valley Forge.

This Sunday at 2:30, Historical Society member and author Rudy Cusumano will present “George Washington: His Rightful Place in History” at the Historical Society headquarters.  Mr. Cusumano with pay tribute to our first president, whom he believes was the greatest military commander and statesman of all time.

Rudy Cusumano taught for many years in the Methacton School District.  His most recent book is The Mock Court Martial of British General Sir William Howe.

Light refreshments will be served including a cake for General Washington’s birthday,  made from Martha Washington’s own recipe.  The Historical Society of Montgomery County is located at 1654 DeKalb Street, Norristown.
