At our upcoming meeting on November 14, our scheduled speaker, Tim McGrath, was to present on naval hero John Barry. However, Hurricane Sandy had other plans, inflicting serious damage on John’s New Jersey home. Unfortunately, John is dealing with that issue and needed to cancel.
Fortunately, Program VP Bruce Venter was able to recruit our own Bert Dunkerly to fill the void. Bert is a National Park Service ranger and author of a number of books on the American Revolution in the south. He will be speaking on “The British Raids in Virginia, 1781.” Bert recently made this well received presentation to the new Fredericksburg ARRT. It covers our own back yard. Thanks to Bert for coming to our rescue!
