Forgotten Patriots: Virginia’s Black Continental Army Soldiers and Sailors of the Revolution at LaPrade Library

February 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

In 1781, citizens of Chesterfield County witnessed the American Revolution come right through their community. Black Virginia men camped, marched, and fought side by side with their white neighbors in pursuit of liberty and independence from King George III and English rule. Their roles are still often overlooked but undoubtedly helped the ideas of the Revolution to take root.
