Abbitt Memorial Park
5:30 p.m. - 9 p.m.

On April 22, 1776, Mr. Carter Henry Harrison, from the porch of Effingham Tavern at Cumberland Court House, did instruct elected delegates of this County to vote for independence from the British government at the Virginia Convention of May 6, 1776. This was the First Call for American Independence issued by a publicly elected governmental body. This event of the First Call for Freedom is unique, historic, and ever serves as an example of self-government in the Cause of Liberty.
