Re:      Seminar Series – “Muskets and Petticoats”



On November 14, 2012, at 6:30pm the Radley Run Country Club will hold our 4th Historic Seminar.  This annual event is open to the public.


The event this year, “Muskets and Petticoats”, will include little known facts about the relationship between General George Washington and the Marques de Lafayette.  To Washington, Lafayette became the son he never had and to Lafayette, Washington became the father he never knew.  The evening will also focus on the often overlooked, yet important, role women played in the American Revolution.  We expect a full house for this exciting event that will cover events from the Battle of the Brandywine on September 11, 1777 through the winter at Valley Forge.


As always the proceeds from the event will benefit charities.  The beneficiaries this year are all related to the topic and include the Lafayette College Library, the Chester County Historical Society, and Friends of Valley Forge Park.


Admission to the event costs $20 per person.  Attendees are welcome to stay for a buffet following the presentation for an additional $20 plus tax and gratuity.


To make your reservation please call Radley Run at (610)793-1660.
