Eight years ago, my sister Rachel and I made a cassette tape about George Washington for fun (yes, this is what teenage Read girls did for fun…in the era when I made a portrait of George Washington the desktop background on our computer). We organized a soundtrack for the recording by playing Baroque and Classical pieces on a CD player in our room during production. We thought it would be appropriate to share this presentation in a video in honor of our beloved Washington’s 281st birthday.
Never let a childhood endeavor go to waste!
I think we were influenced by Diana Waring, whose history tapes we would routinely listen to at bedtime. We wanted to tell history in the same entertaining way she did!
