VALLEY VORGE, PAThe Washington Memorial Heritage has announced that it will host a fascinating discussion with renowned historian and author David Cross of Indispensable Leadership (LLC) about his acclaimed Washington Post essay “Chasing History: One Man’s Road Trip Through The Presidential Libraries” Thursday, November 10 at 6 PM at the Washington Memorial Chapel.

During this exclusive “Lead Like George” Leadership event, Cross will take the audience on a journey through his life-changing experience of visiting each of the 13 Presidential Libraries on one very long road trip. Armed with the question “Can the 13 institutions be combined into one central Presidential Research Center?”, Cross found much more than he was looking for in his quest for an answer. He found a first step to understanding history.


History aficionados, students, and those who are looking for inspiration and guidance from the greatest leaders of our nation’s time, are invited to learn from Cross’ expedition and insights in this sure-to-be enlightening discussion.
