On December 4, 1783, nine days after the last British soldiers left American soil, General George Washington visited Fraunces Tavern. He invited his officers from the Continental Army to thank them for their service, and to bid them farewell. After embracing each officer and wishing them well, Washington left for Annapolis, where he would resign his military commission before traveling on to Mount Vernon. The only first-hand account of this emotional goodbye comes from The Memoirs of Colonel Benjamin Tallmadge, which Fraunces Tavern Museum has on display.

This year, Fraunces Tavern Museum is bringing Washington’s farewell to you with a brand new film which reimagines General Washington’s emotional parting with his officers in the historic Long Room at Fraunces Tavern.

On Friday, December 4, at 6:30pm, join Fraunces Tavern Museum and the team behind Washington’s Farewell for an exclusive screening of the film, followed by a Q&A with the reenactors.

Venue: Fraunces Tavern Museum
