How the States Got Their Shapes: the Ongoing Disputes Between Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland

When: Sat., April 14, 11 a.m. 2018
Starting with the original Maryland charter there have been almost continuous disputes between Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland and as to the location of their common borders and the associated rights. The Privy Council in London, the U.S. Supreme Court, various commissions and even local courts have been involved in deciding issues through the years. The speaker, David Lee Ingram, will highlight some of those issues and explore the consequences. Mr. Ingram is a licensed surveyor. In retirement, he is a land surveying ethicist and historian. Reservations are not being taken for this lecture, but seating will be limited. The Chesterfield County Museum is at 6813 Mimms Loop on the courthouse green.
