Chatham Rises: Wealth, Position, Obligation and Torment

This program will look at Chatham’s early decades under the Fitzhughs’ ownership – its agricultural foundations, the expectations placed on its owners (the Fitzhughs), and the realities of one of the region’s two most prominent colonial plantations. Chatham’s story is an uneasy admixture of elegance and oppression, permeated with competing quests for prosperity and freedom.
