oin Landmark Historian Bill Potter and protégé Ben Householder as we spend a week in the Commonwealth of Virginia focusing on men and women that devoted their lives to oppose tyranny in a plethora of situations employing a variety of means. We will visit the homes of four of the first five Presidents—Washington, Jefferson, Madison and Monroe—and study what shaped them and how they interacted with kings and cohorts that desired to lord over our fledging country. We will also examine the lives of two great preachers: Samuel Davies and Peter Muhlenberg; men that brought the Word of God faithfully to their flocks, germinating a fierce lawful resistance—civilly and militarily—to tyranny. Along the way, we will introduce you to some lesser-known heroes and heroines of freedom, and wrap it all up with Highland Games in the park and a Saturday afternoon picnic at the Potters’ place!
We will make our headquarters in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and travel out on a motorcoach Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Friday we will reposition to Woodstock, Virginia and use our own vehicles to navigate to local venues in Winchester and Woodstock. Lunch on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and the Potter picnic on Saturday are included. Accommodations and transportation are each guest’s responsibility with the exception of the motor coach. We have rented the meeting room at the Hampton Inn in Fredericksburg for evening lectures and fellowship.
