The American Revolution brought about irreparable divisions within many families throughout the colonies. Virginia attorney Edmund Randolph was quick to embrace the patriot cause, while his father remained steadfastly loyal to the Crown. This fissure would define one of Virginia's most prominent families for decades and shaped Edmund's political career through the early years of the Republic. His service in the Continental Congress, the Constitutional Convention, and as the nation’s first Attorney General and second Secretary of State were crucial to the development of the young United States.
Join 2018 Monticello Fellow Stephanie Seal Walters as she delves into the feud that split the Randolph family during and after the American Revolution. The program begins at the Cunningham Chapel in Millwood and will conclude with a tour of nearby Carter Hall, site of Edmund Randolph's death in 1813. Light refreshments will be available following the talk.
