Bert Dunkerly has been following with considerable concern the construction at the corner of 14th & Cary Streets, the site of the Virginia state capitol during the last years of the Revolution. Recently he discovered that there is going to be a marker and exhibit space there, apparently coexisting with the new hotel going up.
Hemade contact with someone from the First Freedom Foundation, and he shared with Bert a lot of their plans. Here's the link: http://www.firstfreedom.org/firstfreectr/office.html
This project marks one of the most significant, and currently overlooked, Revolutionary War sites in our city.
Chris Payton with the Foundation, is very interested in our Round Table and attended last night's meeting.
