On Sunday, April 10 from 2-4 PM, John Maass will be speaking at the Louisa County Historical Society on his new book, The Road to Yorktown: Jefferson, Lafayette and the British Invasion of Virginia (The History Press, 2015).
This book explores the 1781 British invasion of central Virginia in the campaign leading up to the Siege of Yorktown in October 1781. In this campaign, Virginia Governor Thomas Jefferson and Major General the Marquis de Lafayette desperately tried to counter the active operations of the invading redcoats led by Lieutenant General Charles, Lord Cornwallis, whose march across the Piedmont and Tidewater regions devastated much of the Old Dominion. This dramatic story also includes many key figures of the Revolutionary War, including Patrick Henry, Jack Jouett, Nathanael Greene,“Mad” Anthony Wayne, Richard Henry Lee, Baron von Steuben, and Daniel Boone.
The talk will be at 214 Fredericksburg Ave, in Louisa, Va 23093.
