Richard Bland Lee, Northern Virginia’s First Congressman: His Critical Role in Saving the Union in 1790

Delve into the drama and intrigue of politics in the 18th century with the first program of Sully’s Fall Lecture Series! This lecture by Kenneth Bowling will explore the political life of the original owner of the house at Sully and his political achievements in the First Federal Congress. Uniquely qualified to discuss the subject, Bowling is both Emeritus Professor of History at George Washington University as well as the co-editor of the Documentary History of the First Federal Congress, twenty-two volumes of documents that tell the story of the new Constitution.

Each program in Sully’s Fall Lecture series consists of a presentation by a distinguished guest speaker followed by a Q&A and a white wine reception. Attendees must be over 21 to consume alcohol; non-alcoholic drinks will be available. Visitors are asked to please respect our two-glass limit on wine. Limited seating is available and advance registration is required to reserve your seat for these programs. Enrollment for each program is $35.00. Please contact us at 703-437-1794 to make your reservation. Guest speakers are sponsored by the Sully Foundation Ltd. and receptions are presented by the Fairfax County Park Authority.
