Class Experience

Students will learn why George Washington created a spy network, its leading spies who were never caught and how to create secret messages.
Rick Snider has been passing secret messages since grade school using Washington’s method while growing up near Mount Vernon. It served him well during a 40-plus year career as a Washington journalist by using modern spies now known as sources. Rick also teaches three classes involving George Washington, including Let’s Visit George Washington’s Mount Vernon, Five Greatest Presidents and Eight Founding Fathers Who Created A Nation. 
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
