Bill Wellington – The Midnight Ride of Jack Jouett

March 29 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

| $16.00

In June of 1781 Virginia patriot Jack Jouett rode 40 miles from Louisa County to warn Governor Thomas Jefferson and the Virginia legislature that the British were coming to Charlottesville to capture not only them, but the rest of the Virginia state government. As a result, Jefferson headed south and a few short months later, the British surrendered to George Washington at Yorktown.
Storyteller and folk musician Bill Wellington performs his program, “The Midnight Ride of Jack Jouett,” about Jouett’s amazing ride through the countryside.
