Southside Revolutionary Virginia 1775 Tour: October 12, 2019

ARRT-Richmond announces a tour of Southside Revolutionary Virginia (1775) on October 12, 2019.

The tour will be lead by Dr. Patrick H. (Pat) Hannum, Professor, Joint Forces Staff College, National Defense University, Lt Col USMC (Ret). This tour will visit three critically important Revolutionary War sites in the modern Cities of Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Chesapeake in order to help inform the important events and explain how the Whig Government ousted the Royal Governor, Lord Dunmore, and British military forces from the State of Virginia. These events largely unfolded in the fall of 1775 and culminated with the destruction of the City of Norfolk in early 1776. Strategically important, these events led to near uncontested Whig control of the State of Virginia for three and one-half years. The British defeat at Yorktown in October 1781 traces its roots to the critical decisions and decisive actions of the Whig Governments of Virginia and North Carolina in the fall of 1775. 

We will visit:
  • St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Norfolk
  • Kemp's Landing, Virginia Beach
  • Great Bridge, Chesapeake
To register, please send a check for $45, payable to ARRT-Richmond, to:

American Revolutionary War Round Table of Upstate NY

From Brian Mack:

We at the American Revolutionary War Round-Table (ARRT) of Upstate NY not only welcome Spring but we also welcome a new name. Formerly known as the American Revolution Round Table: Hudson/Mohawk Valleys, we decided to change the name to include a broader geographic area with our outreach. Plus, it’s a bit shorter than the prior name. Also, with a new name, is a new website, please visit for round table events, details and more. We look forward to branching out and working with organizations who love the American Revolutionary War as much as we do.
