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.
