A group of local residents is taking a glimpse at the life of America's founding father.

Wednesday at the Senior Center, local author Dr. Edward Lengel, presented a closer look at George Washington's wartime experiences.

The event provided an opportunity for Lengel to talk about and answer questions about Washington's life, while promoting his latest book, General George Washington: A Military Life.

"I think by looking at George Washington's military career we can learn more about who he was and why he was important to the founding of our country," said Dr. Lengel.

The event was sponsored by the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society and Senior Center.
