The Northumberland County Historical Society annual holiday program will be held December 7, 2014 at the Ball Memorial Museum and Library in Heathsville, VA. The program will feature the reading of several Christmas letters from our troops in World War II, World War I, and the Civil War to their families at home.
This will be followed by a presentation entitled “Christmas in Colonial Virginia” presented by Robert Teagle who is the Education Director and Curator for the Foundation for Historic Christ Church in Weems, Virginia. Mr. Teagle’s BA, from the College of William and Mary, is in history and his MA, from Virginia Tech, is in American history. His current work focuses on Colonial Virginia and its architecture, the role of the Church of England, and the Carter family.
The program will begin at 2:30 PM and all are invited to attend. Refreshments will be served after the program.
