If quarantine has you pining for the days of attending history lectures in Old Town, or if the new filmed version of Hamilton has put you in a revolutionary war mood, the recently reopened Lyceum (201 S. Washington Street) has a digital alternative planned tomorrow.
From 7-8:30 p.m. tomorrow (Thursday), the Alexandria History Museum at the Lyceum is planning to history lecture with local author John Maass about the Battle of Guilford Court House. The lecture will be hosted on Zoom. Tickets are $6 with a code to the chat sent on purchase.
The battle was a Pyrrhic victory for British Lieutenant-General Charles Cornwallis, who suffered significant losses and was forced to abandon his campaign to maintain British control of the Carolinas.
“Please join us on Zoom as Dr. Maass recounts the bloody Battle of Guilford Courthouse and the grueling campaign in the South that led up to it,” The Lyceum said in the event listing, “a crucial event on the road to American independence.”
For those wishing to visit The Lyceum in person, the museum is currently requiring visitors to purchase advance $3 tickets for a time slot. Visitors are required to wash their hands on entering and wear a face mask. Tickets are valid for groups of no larger than 10 people.
