Lecture Series

July 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$5

Join us on Tuesday, July 9 at 7 PM as the museum continues its lecture series!

Culpeper County was among the earliest Virginia counties to produce Resolves in 1774. Join us as local historian Jim Bish explores the importance and uniqueness of these resolves. Virginia was the wealthiest and most populated of all of the colonies. Their commitment against the actions of England became paramount in the success of the Revolution. The results of the British disenfranchisement and anger manifested itself in what came to number over fifty local Virginia Resolves. Culpeper’s Resolves served to voice our grievances, but in a larger sense, they served to unite Culpeper and other Virginia localities for the long-term upcoming struggle against England. Culpeper was ready for war.

This program will be held at the museum. Space is limited so save your seat today and then pay at the door! Admission is $5 per person but Museum members get in FREE.
