Book Talk - Author Charlene Giannetti

Sunday, 05/21/2017 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

Join us for a free book talk with Author Charlene C. Giannetti on her book "The Plantations of Virginia" at 1:30 p.m. About the Book: Southern plantations are an endless source of fascination. That's no surprise since these palatial homes are rich in history, representing a pivotal time in U.S. history that truly is "gone with the wind." With the Civil War literally exploding all around, many of these homes were occupied either by Confederate or Union troops. Nowhere else I the south were plantations so affected by the nation's bloodiest war than in Virginia. At times, families fled, leaving behind slaves to manage the property. There are still more than 60 plantations in Virginia today, most of them open to the public. Some have been restored, others undergoing the process. If only walls could talk, the stories we might hear! Attachments
