Sections J, K, L and P.  So far, 149 graves in the  cemetery  have  been

OUR NOVEMBER SPEAKER


Jeb Stuart's Last Ride: The Battle of Yellow Tavern
by
Tom Perry

Tom has written or edited about 45 books, articles and  papers.   Topics
range from General Stuart to Patrick and Nelson Counties, Bull Mountain,
General Stoneman, Andy of Mayberry and many  histories  of  persons  and
places of interest in the Patrick County region.                        

Tom  graduated  from VA Tech in 1983 with a bachelor's degree in history
and was one of Dr.  Robertson's 22,000 history students.  He founded the
JEB  Stuart  birthplace  in 1990 which includes the house JEB grew up in
and an additional 75 acres of the farm.   Tom  penned  the  interpretive
signs  at  Laurel Hill as well as the nearby Civil War Trails and the VA
Historical Highway marker.  His  vast  amount  of  historical  data  and
documents  about  Patrick  County  and  Stuart now reside at the VA Tech
Carol M.  Newman Library.                                               

Tom  has  appeared  on  TV  and  on  historic  DVD  documentaries.   His
historical  work  has garnered over $200,000 in charitable funds for the
regional Bassett Historical Center and he was named the Henry County Man
of  the  Year.  He is currently working on a 3 volume work of the Papers
of JEB Stuart.  His recently deceased mentor, Bud  Robertson,  would  be
very proud!                                                             

OUR DECEMBER DINNER PROGRAM


"Celebrating Christmas During the American Civil War"
by
Beth & Chris Houlihan

Our Christmas Dinner will be held on  Tuesday,  December  3rd,  2019  at
Patrick  Henry's  Pub,  2300  E.   Broad  Street, Richmond, VA.  History
Dinner tickets are $35.00 each and will include a 3  course  by  Patrick
Henry's Pub.  CW storytelling will be in between courses. (At an earliey
meeting all present were very impressed with their war stories.)        

Beth Houlihan, President Richmond Historic Haunts
Beth's involvement in RVA tourism started  in  2008.   With  degrees  in
Education,  Theater  &  Writing from St.  Lawrence University in Canton,
New York, sharing her passion for history with an  audience  has  always
come  naturally  for  her.   She  is  the President of Richmond Historic
Haunts and acts as the company's creative director and head tour guide.

Chris Houlihan, Vice President Richmond Historic Haunts
Chris entered the tourism community a couple short years after Beth.  An
engineer  by  trade,  with a degree from Clarkson University in Potsdam,
New York, his interests are rooted  in  the  historic  architecture  and
infrastructure  that contribute to the fabric of modern Richmond.  He is
the Vice President of Richmond Historic Haunts and  is  responsible  for
keeping  things  ticking  behind the scenes.  Occasionally you can catch
him out sharing tales on the tours too.                                 

The Company:
Richmond Historic Haunts Tour Company is focused on sharing the  offbeat
and overshadowed aspects of RVA's history.  The company is the sister of
Haunts of Richmond Ghost Tours, a company  founded  on  the  premise  of
sharing  ghost  stories  with a passion for the history that accompanies
the spirited tales.  As Haunts of Richmond continued to  grow  and  more
stories  were  collected, ghost and history alike, a load of fascinating
little-known information was gathered that  never  quite  fit  with  the
ghost  tour  company.   Nevertheless, there was a strong desire to bring
these tales forward in a way that would do justice  to  the  history  of
Richmond, and those who have lived through it.
