241 pages. B/W photos. The story of its preservation and care since 1885. Just what was - and is - the legacy of Mount Vernon? Ann Pamela Cunningham, founder and first Regent of the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association, answered the question in one sentence. In 1874, addressing the annual meeting of the Grand Council of the Association, she said: Let one spot in this grand country of ours be saved from change. Upon you rests this duty. That the Association members - then as now - accepted their duty with enthusiasm and discharged it with dedication is borne out in this sequel to Mount Vernon is Ours. B/W photos. Endpapers are illustrated. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: History; History; Inventory No: 121110. Hardcover
