report by Lew de Seife, Williamsburg Chapter
The Williamsburg Chapter, Sons of the American Revolution, installed two new officers: Bill Greaf was installed as Historian and Richard Newsome as Newsletter Editor
John Fitzhugh Millar delivered a presentation to Williamsburg Chapter Sons of the American Revolution on "Why were the French involved in the American Revolution". The answer in a nutshell, is that the French were broke from their Continental wars, and were trying to refill their coffers by capturing British possessions.
Millar graduated from Harvard, and received an MA from William & Mary. He has written numerous historical books, and built copies of two Revolutionary ships, which led to the building of L’Hermione.
