DAVID LIBRARY OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION LECTURE SERIES

Sunday, May 21, 2017 – 3:00 PM – Glenn F. Williams, Ph. D., Historian, U.S. Army Center of Military History : “Lord Dunmore’s Last Conflict of America’s Colonial Era.” This presentation explains the causes and conduct of the last Indian War before the start of the American War for Independence.  Fought between the Colony of Virginia and a confederation of the Shawnee and Mingo Indians in the Ohio Country, many historians pay it little attention or misinterpret it and its historical significance.  However, John Murray, fourth Earl of Dunmore, the last royal governor of Virginia, led the colony’s soldiers to victory in what was essentially a defensive war.  Dr. Williams will dispel many long-held beliefs about the conflict and the Battle of Point Pleasant, as well the organization, composition, and tactical doctrine of Virginia’s colonial militia before the Revolution.  Dr. Williams is the author Lord Dunmore’s War: the Last Conflict of America’s Colonial Era.
