As a young man Thomas returned to Virginia and fought in the conflict known as Dunmore’s War, a major stepping-stone to the American Revolution, and also served at the Battle of Point Pleasant.

Come experience first-hand historical interpretation as presented by Doug Wood portraying Thomas Ingles. You will get to hear Thomas’ story and speak to the presenter about the time period.
