Living History! The Leedstown Resolutions & Tappahannock Demonstration

Please join us on Saturday, February 27th as the Northern Neck of Virginia Historical Society presents this exciting event. History will come to life along the streets of Tappahannock later in February as the Northern Neck of Virginia Historical Society and the Essex County Museum collaborate to present dramatic reenactments of the famous Tappahannock demonstrations to enforce the Leedstown Resolutions, against the wealthy and insolent Archibald Ritchie and the Scotsman Stamp Collector, Archibald McCall, who was tarred and feathered for his refusal to comply.

Relying upon historic documents and correspondence, docents and living history interpreters will provide visitors with reenactments of the dramatic events leading up to America's Revolution, ten years before the Declaration of Independence. Tours will take about 40 minutes and will commence at 1:15, 2:15 and 3:15 on Saturday 27th February. Light refreshments will be served at the Museum. Admission is free.

Please visit the Northern Neck of Virginia Historical Society website for more information.
