Colonel George Mason (aka Joe Ziarko) addresses Kiwanis

Joe Ziarko, in the guise of Colonel George Mason, a somewhat less-known Founding Father, recently spoke to the Kiwanis Club of Colonial Capital. In his talk, the Colonel described his work in the period leading up to the Declaration of Independence, and his contributions as an influential Virginian in shaping the documents which govern our nation to this day. Joe's talk was lively and in keeping with the Colonel's irascible character.
Joe majored in history and theater at Dickinson College, and has converted those passions into a profession. He currently heads up Colonial Williamsburg Foundation's Nation Builders program which is their group of professional interpreter historians
