An Afternoon in Aldie

  • Institute Farm

This program will explore the history of the Aldie area.  It begins at Institute Farm, once home to the Loudoun Agricultural and Chemical Institute.  This school was the first of its kind in Virginia and was at the cutting edge of the agricultural revolution of the 19th century.  After the closure of the school the farm became home to the National Beagle Club and remains at the epicenter of American beagling to this day.

The program continues a short distance away at the Furr Farm, along the historic Snickersville Turnpike.  Home to one of Mosby's Rangers, the farm saw extensive action during the Battle of Aldie in June, 1863.  A monument to the 1st Massachusetts Cavalry stands as a testament to the blood shed on this ground.  Today the farm complex has been lovingly restored to its nineteenth century appearance.

Historians at each site will cover a variety of topics relating to the Civil War, agricultural history, historic preservation, and more!  

Refreshments are included.  Tickets can be purchased below--$30 for MHAA members and $40 for non-members.  Please purchase your tickets below or by calling (540) 687-6681.

The American Revolution in the Mosby Heritage Area Caravan Tour

Hoping to deal a crushing blow to the Patriot cause, British forces began a large invasion of Virginia in 1781.  British and American forces converged on the state from many different directions, including a force of Continental soldiers who, on their way south, trekked through Loudoun and Fauquier counties under the command of Anthony Wayne.

Society of Rebels: The Civil War Diary of Belle Grove's Amanda Edmonds

The Fireside Mosby: Revolutionary Loudoun, 1774-1784

The Fireside Mosby: Revolutionary Loudoun, 1774-1784

  • Middleburg Montessori School

There are dozens of Revolutionary War sites and markers in the eastern United States, and Virginia has a number, particularly at Yorktown.  It comes as a surprise to some to cross the Potomac and come into the first major town, Leesburg, and see a proud sculpture of a Revolutionary War soldier heading off to join Washington, with his young son and wife clinging on for those last few precious moments before he departs.  Were their battles or skirmishes here in Loudoun County, Virginia?  Why haven’t I heard of them?
 
At the beginning of the American Revolution in 1775, Loudoun was the Southern Back Country—the new America, a recently settled area close to the frontier that had more than doubled in population in the previous decade.  It was a land of immigrants, some seven different religions, of all social classes and all sizes of farms.  Some had come from Tidewater, some from Pennsylvania, some directly from Europe or Africa.   It was a land of the enslaved, indentured servants, and of the free.  Relatively speaking, it was a land of opportunity.  What made Loudoun contribute more men to the American Revolution than any other county in Virginia, which then stretched from the crashing Atlantic to the mighty Mississippi?  What places still exist on the Loudoun landscape for citizens and visitors that still harken back and tell us the tale of that time?
 
Join in an intimate conversation with the Mosby Heritage Area Association featuring young historian Doug Breton as he shares stories and places from Loudoun's Revolutionary War Era landscape.  Breton interned with the Mosby Heritage Area Association during the summer of 2016, zeroing in on the Revolutionary time period in the region.   A Loudoun Valley High School grad, Breton is finishing his studies in his final semester at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg before heading on to graduate school in history.

The program will begin at 6:00 p.m., though refreshments will be served beginning at 5:30 p.m.  The Great Room at the Middleburg Montessori School will serve as the setting for this unique look at Loudoun's history.  There will be no charge for admission, but donations will be graciously accepted.  Participants in the program will receive a copy of Breton's driving tour of American Revolution sites in Loudoun County.  Call (540) 687-5188 for more information or send an email to kpawlak@mosbyheritagearea.org.
