S. Max Edelson (The New Map of Empire: How Britain Imagined America Before Independence), Lynn Rainville (Virginia and the Great War: Mobilization, Supply, and Combat, 1914-1919), and Camille Wells (Material Witness: Domestic Architecture and Plantation Landscapes in Early Virginia), discuss the inexorable ties of geography to history, conquest, and conflict.

Why should you attend?

Edelson, Rainville, and Wells present material evidence of our history–through maps, data, and landscapes–allowing us to better understand life in Britain before American independence, in the Chesapeake regions during Virginia’s colonial era, and across Virginia as its people and communities prepared for the Great War.
