General Lee

The Dabbs House served as General Robert E. Lee’s headquarters during the summer of 1862. Meet the General and one of his staff at the historic house to learn a little more about the man and his relationship with those around him including his enslaved body servant, Perry Parks. Crafts include making a flag and officer’s insignia. Try your hand using a dip pen. Bring your camera for photos in reproduction Civil War clothing. Put your thinking cap on for ‘Did a Soldier Have It?” Civil War Trivia Game! House tours will be available. Information: leh@henrico.us
