A visit with George!

Actually, a visit with his statue over at George Mason University. Our future daughter-in-law was performing in an opera at the Harris Theatre and I took these photos on our way from the parking lot to the theatre. It was the first time that we had heard Lisa sing in a solo and she has a beautiful voice. She and all the other performers excelled themselves. It was a very enjoyable evening.

George Mason (1725 - 1792) was an American patriot, statesman and delegate from Virginia and along with James Madison he is called the "Father of the Bill of Rights" and is considered one of the founding fathers of the United States.
