Norman Fuss spoke on Virginia Royal Governor Dunmore's raid on the Williamsburg Magazine on April 21, 1775. Arms and gunpowder were removed to British ships anchored in the James River. The act aroused the community and ignited a series of escalating incidents that led to the expulsion of Royal authority and British forces from Virginia for the next five years. Mr. Fuss presented many little-known details uncovered by him in his in-depth research of the event.
Mr. Fuss is a living history interpreter, a tour guide for the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, and a voluntary consultant for the American History Museum at Yorktown. He has published over two dozen articles related to the Revolutionary War period.
