Due to unforeseen circumstances, Mark Lender's presentation on Fort Ticonderoga will be rescheduled for 2024.
Our own Randy Flood, who presented on Alexander Hamilton in 2017, will step in and be speaking on:
The Real John Graves Simcoe
To most Americans who enjoyed watching the TV series entitled "TURN: Washington’s Spies," British Lt. Colonel John Graves Simcoe is a crazed, sinister, psychopathic nutcase, reminiscent of the Clint Eastwood “Dirty Harry” movies of the 1970’s. Is this true? Who was the “real” John Graves Simcoe? In this lecture, Randy will focus on Simcoe’s life and military career and offer insights rarely known about this British officer of the American Revolution.
Randy is a member of our ARRT-Richmond and of the Williamsburg-Yorktown Roundtable, as well. He is also Host and Executive Producer of The Real American Revolution Multimedia Center & Consortium for Civic Education, located at www.trar.us; a nonprofit organization established to educate Americans and others about what really happened during our American Revolution.
THIS IS AN IN-PERSON MEETING IN THE GOTTWALD SCIENCE CENTER (located just outside the Heilman Dining Center) AT 6:30 PM. DINNER WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE.
