Ravensworth was the largest colonial land grant in Fairfax County, some 24,112 acres. This is a story of colonial settlement, early government, tobacco plantations, slavery, civil war, economic expansion, the rise and decline of family farms, and suburban development - next door to the nation's capital - involving people, places, and events, both famous and obscure. Notable historic figures connected to Ravensworth include George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Robert E. Lee. Author John Browne shares this story. Register at 703-792-4540 or email@example.com.
