For My Eyes Only: Early Virginia Diarists Tell All

December 28, 2013   |   Time: 10:30 AM -12:00 PM

A surprisingly large number of adult Virginians keptdiaries during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and we are fortunate when their journals survive for later generations to appreciate. Most diarists never expected anyone else to see their writings. So, when their observations are detailed, they often tend to be very frank. This tour will feature a wide range of diaries kept by well-known and unknown Virginians and offer candid excerpts that sometimes sound surprisingly like modern postings to Facebook or tweets on Twitter.

Reservations are required and may be made on the VHS website or in the VHS Museums Shop.

Tours take place from 10:30 a.m.–12:00 p.m. and cost $10 for VHS members and $17 for nonmembers.

To receive the membership rate for this ticket, you must be a current VHS member and login to this site. Join online today!
