Washington will reveal his thinking on a number of topics. He will comment on his presidency, his wife and the guests they have entertained at Mount Vernon. How he feels about having to sit for portraits; a discussion about his last will in which he frees his slaves as well as his solution for ending that peculiar situation; and his explanation of the symbiotic relationship between the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
Closs' in-person conversations as Washington have been described as "highly entertaining" and "authentic."
