Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start
Randolph (Randy) Flood will talk about the American Revolution and highlight certain events and personalities that have evolved into "myths" that confuse the truth, distort the facts, or outright lie about what really happened. Randy is Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of the American Revolution Consortium for Civic Education; a nonprofit organization established to educate citizens about the American Revolution with an emphasis on History, Civics, World Geography, Economics and Historic Preservation. He is a frequent guest lecturer on topics about the American Revolution.
Graduating from Shepherd College, West Virginia in 1973, Randy began his professional career serving on the staff of the U. S. Committee on Environment and Public Works during the “Environmental Decade of the 1970’s” when most of our nation’s environmental laws were enacted. Later, he joined the Legislative staff of U.S. Senator Harry F. Byrd, Jr. (I-VA) and eventually formed his own government relations firm, which represented numerous maritime and defense clients that included transportation pioneer Malcom McLean, the “Father of Containerization,” among others.
While in Washington, D.C., Randy taught federal government courses on the legislative and budget processes as an Adjunct Faculty at George Washington University, and was a frequent guest lecturer at numerous colleges and universities, trade associations, business and Labor meetings and conferences.
Currently, he is Vice Chairman of the Williamsburg-Yorktown American Revolution Roundtable and a Co-Founder of the Dr. Joseph Warren Historical Society.
