Thursday, September 29th: From Cincinnatus to Cincinnati!

The Society of the Cincinnati, Inc. is a patriotic-hereditary society with branches in the United States and France, founded in 1783, to preserve the ideals and fellowship of officers of the Continental Army who served in the Revolutionary War.

Now in its third century, the Society promotes public interest in the American Revolution through its library and museum collections, exhibitions, programs, publications, and other activities. It is the oldest hereditary society in North America.

Pierre de Boigne is a friend of the Society of Cincinnati that gave its name to the city we know (and not the way round as you may think).
Let's him speak about the history and the projects of the organization and learn from one of the descendants the role of the French who helped in the American Révolution.

M. Boigne, wine-maker, also owns Château de Pitray, a luxury bed and breakfast in the quiet countryside near Saint-Emilion.
