On Saturday, May 19th (from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.) Rick will speak on "Jack Jouett's Overnight Ride." Central Virginia's own Paul Revere, this young son of a tavern owner--during perhaps the Old Dominion's darkest hours--rode from Louisa County to Monticello and Charlottesville to warn Governor Thomas Jefferson and the state assemblymen that British dragoons were approaching. Come hear this fascinating true story, as well as its numerous associated myths and legends!
