October 2 Grand Opening at James Madison Birthplace

On Saturday, October 2, The James Monroe Memorial Foundation plans a Grand Opening Ceremony for the James Monroe Birthplace House in Westmoreland  County (4460 James Monroe Highway, Colonial Beach – on Route 205 just south of Colonial Beach) at 10:00 a.m.

There will be tours of the Birthplace House after the ceremony featuring the finished interior of the House and preliminary furnishings.

President Monroe was the only President besides George Washington to have actively served in the regular army during the Revolutionary War, participating in six major battles (as well as wintering at Valley Forge, crossing the Delaware with George Washington, being seriously wounded at Trenton and cited for conspicuous bravery) and subsequently served simultaneously as Secretary of War and Secretary of State (during the War of 1812, when he helped coordinate American defenses against the British). He was also an active participant in our first American lineage society, the Society of the Cincinnati.


The draft of the day’s program is here.
