Down With George Iii…

May 2024

I am proud that most of my ancestors came from the British Isles, but 1 am even prouder of being an American. And as an American who has four Revolutionary War ancestors, I bitterly resent (and I’m not DAR, though I’m eligible) the fact that the British Embassy in Washington has hung a picture of George III on our soil (“The British View,” May/June).

My God! England! How insensitive can you get!

Editor’s note: Actually, by diplomatic custom, the ground on which the British Embassy in Washington stands is considered British soil.

We hope you enjoy our work.
