Today, learn more about another politician in crisis in “Dunmore’s Dilemma”
The government shutdown, instability in nations around the world, the budget stalement: Politicians of the 21st century are waking up to another vexing morning. They might take some comfort from the fact that in 1774, the Royal Governor also was under intense pressure as boundary disputes, Indians and the House of Burgesses roiled the political waters.
Find out how Lord Dunmore, who was named Virginia’s governor in 1770, navigated some treacherous territory in the 18th century. Visit him at 10:30 a.m. at the Governor’s Palace Grounds.
