"Take Note! Washington the Reader" is to begin Sept. 27 and run through Jan. 12. The exhibition at Washington's former home coincides with the opening of the estate's Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington.
"Visitors often think of George Washington as a man of action, but behind the rebel and the leader was a critical, inquisitive reader," Washington's Mount Vernon museum curator Susan P. Schoelwer said in a statement. "In this exhibit, we're thrilled to display some incredible and rarely-seen Washington books, notes, and letters that help us get inside his mind and begin to map the intellectual networks of which he was a part."
