Since 2006, John Koopman III, has had the honor of portraying General George Washington in many National Parks, State Parks and other historic sites all along the East Coast. This is your chance to see George Washington LIVE via Zoom?! Yes, you heard it right, John Koopman will embody the General himself before the 1776 election. Mr. Koopman's impression is unique in that he owns the most authentic reproduction made to date of the uniform worn by the General. His uniform, horse tack and other accoutrements were made by the same artisans who produced the new exhibit at the Mount Vernon Museum. According to research conducted for the new exhibit, which includes three life-size figures of Washington that were made based on the most up-to-date and accurate historical information available, Mr. Koopman's physique and dimensions are almost identical to that George Washington! You will truly believe that you are in the presence of our first President! This is a must-see event for history buffs.
