ECW Weekender: Prince William County’s Virtual History Lectures

Need to put something historic on your calendar for the coming weeks? They don’t technically fall on weekends, but these lectures are something you’ll be able to explore and experience from the safety of home this winter season.

Starting on January 28th, Prince William County Historic Preservation Division is presenting monthly presentations online for free. You might even recognize some of the historians’ names on the list!

This year’s topics cover a wide variety of Prince William County and American history:

  • Jan. 28: Kevin Pawlak, “Ben Lomond, Buffalo, and the Assassination of a President”
  • Feb. 25: Marion Ransell Cohen, “The Story of Jennie Dean”
  • March 25: John Hennessy, “An End to Innocence: The First Manassas Campaign”
  • April 22: Dan Paterson, “James Longstreet After the Civil War: The Controversy Explained”

This link has been shared as the place to register for the free lectures, and we’re told that registered participants will receive an email link prior to the start of the program. For more information, visit or call (703) 367-7872.
