George Washington's Mount Vernon recently celebrated America's independence with historical actors, Revolutionary War military demonstrations and an appearance from General George Washington, himself, who inspected troops of the 1st Virginia Regiment and conducted a reading of the Declaration of Independence for guests.

Visitors were welcome to explore the grounds and outbuildings, pay their respects at the Slave Memorial and Cemetery, stroll the gardens, enjoy views from the mansion's piazza, visit the final resting place of George and Martha Washington and much more!
