Flood will explore the “Myths” that hide our Patriotic Past and reveal the true motives and actions that led to the creation of the United States of America.

Flood is CEO of the American Revolution Consortium for Civic Education and The Real American Revolution education television series, respectively. He began his career on the professional staff of the U.S. Senate, followed by teaching government courses on the legislative and budget processes at George Washington University and other colleges and universities. A frequent speaker at historical societies and museums, and other public events, he now lectures on over 40 topics pertaining to the American Revolution. Currently, he is administering a National Park Foundation grant and implementing a comprehensive training program to educate teachers, museum personnel, national and state park rangers and the general public about the Revolution in preparation for celebrating the 250th Anniversary.

This lecture is going to be held on Facebook Live: https://www.facebook.com/events/1670742403317026, and can later be found on Facebook under the Hampton History Museum's Facebook video tab and on www.hamptonhistorymuseum.org

Revolutionary Hampton
 Flood’s overview serves as a lead-up to “Revolutionary Hampton,” a series of videos exploring the events, conflicts and personalities in and around the area leading up to, and during, the War for Independence, including the 1775 Battle of Hampton. Coming soon, and debuting throughout the year, these videos will be found on Facebook, YouTube and www.hamptonhistorymuseum.org.
