OLLI Class 5: He Died as He Lived: The Death of George Washington

Always aware that he was “on stage,” George Washington did not only want to live with honor but he desired to die with honor as well. The manner in which he faced his final debt to nature tells us much about the man as we focus on his inspirational best way to live—and die.

Dr. Peter Henriques received his PhD in history from the University of Virginia and is professor of history emeritus at George Mason University. He is the author of Realistic Visionary: A Portrait of George Washington. Henriques’s latest book is First and Always: A New Portrait of George Washington. In 2012 Henriques was given the George Washington Memorial Award by the George Washington Masonic Memorial Association for his contributions to the study of Washington’s life and achievements.
