Cornwallis in Goochland

Filed under: Early America — John Maass @ 9:01 am

Tuesday I had a nice surprise.  I received a call from the president of the Goochland County Historical Society in Va., who found out about my Tarleton tour and research.  He asked me (and I accepted) to write an article on Lord Cornwallis and the British in Goochland during the 1781 invasion of Virginia for the GCHS annual magazine.  This will be fun, and I am looking forward to it.  We may tie it in with a presentation by me at their summer meeting next year, as the article will likely appear in the 2009 issue.  Goochland is a pretty place, which will hopefully be able to resist the onslaught of sprawl from neighboring Henrico Co.

  1. Ah, Henrico country . . . there is something about that place that makes people want to invade neighboring peaceful communities. Or, at least march to Jamestown and burn it to the ground.
