Hosted by The Fauquier Heritage and Preservation Foundation
Robert L. Sinclair Education Center, 4118 Winchester Road, Marshall.  3 p.m.

Mr. Sinclair’s talk will focus on the history of Fauquier County’s Free State, an area steeped in intrigue, mystery, unclear boundaries, lawlessness, and populated by a fascinating cast of characters including self-imposed “kings.”  Where is the Free State? What is the Free State? When was it created? Who were its first inhabitants and why did they come here? These and many other questions will be answered about this colorful area of the county. Mr. Sinclair, a native of The Plains, is a well-known Fauquier County educator, having served over many decades in a myriad of capacities from classroom teacher to principal. He is a frequent lecturer on the history of Fauquier County. As the president and co-founder of the Fauquier Heritage and Preservation Foundation, a position he has held since 1993, he is well-qualified to deliver an informative and interesting talk on the county’s history. https://www.facebook.com/events/202710790413583/
