Lecture Series: “Prelude to Yorktown 1781 — Lafayette vs. Cornwallis in Virginia”

January 16 @ 6:30 pm

“Prelude to Yorktown 1781 — Lafayette vs. Cornwallis in Virginia”
Join us as Andrew Gutowski, museum board member, discusses the road to surrender. The culmination of the Revolutionary War came in Virginia in 1781. To most people this means the October siege and victory at Yorktown. However, there is a bigger story of an intricate cat and mouse campaign of British vs American forces preceding Yorktown. It includes a great cast of characters, including Lafayette, Washington, Cornwallis, Benedict Arnold and Thomas Jefferson. Culpeper figures in the story of 1781, with echoes down to the present.
