      Hello Everyone,
      Just wanted to post that the Old Barracks Museum in Trenton, N.J.,
      will be presenting a Living History medical program on the illness and
      death of George Washington in December of 1799.(Whew, he just made it
      under the 18th century wire!)
      The first-person drama,entitled "Ah, Fatal Night" will chronicle the
      last hours of the General as three of Virginia's most famous physicians
      perform their examinations, consult in diagnosis, and employ the
      accepted therapies of the time in an heroic, but futile effort to save
      him.
      The program will be performed at the Barracks on Friday, February 16th
      and Sunday February 18th at 7 pm. There is a $10.00 Admission fee and
      reservations are required. If you would like to join us, please call:
      The Old Barracks Museum
      (609) 396-1776

      Thanks very much
