I will be showing my quiz project video "When was the War of 1812?" during the reception at 6:30 pm prior to the showcase activities. If you have any DC history stories to tell, this is a great grant project for you to pursue. I received $2,000 from the Humanities Council of Washington, DC with the Dumbarton House as my fiscal sponsor to make my video quiz about the War of 1812 in Washington, DC. The showcase is free! Just use the Eventbrite link below, or call the HCWDC office to register for the event. ~~Diane Williams
