Dinner and Speaker Event – May 7
“War to Utter Submission…”
Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and the Transformation of a Nation
Friends of Wilderness Battlefield is pleased to host a dinner/speaker event at The Cove at Fawn Lake on Saturday, May 7, from 5:30 PM – 9:00 PM. A cash bar will be available starting at 6:00 PM. Our speaker is John Hennessy, recently retired Chief Historian with the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park and his presentation will look at how this unusual landscape came to embody what the Civil War had become, the immense stakes, and the profound sense of moment the nation felt as the armies fought their way through Spotsylvania County in May 1864.
Guests may browse through items for a Silent Auction beginning at 5:30 PM. Winners will be announced at the end of the evening!
Guests will have a choice of delectable Crusted Parmesan Chicken, savory Grilled Atlantic Salmon or a delicious Vegetable Scampi. The salmon is gluten free. All entrees come with an Asian Salad, and Apple Pie will complete the meal. Iced tea, hot tea and coffee will also be included as a beverage selection. Guests will choose their meal option when they purchase tickets.
