On Wednesday, September 25, at 5:30 p.m., guests at the sixth event at the Inn at Warner Hall’s dinner and discussion series will learn more about Gloucester County’s pivotal role in securing the Patriot victory in the Revolutionary War, specifically at the Battle of the Hook that immediately preceded the Siege at Yorktown.
The Inn at Warner Hall’s Dinner and Discussion series features a prominent speaker, gourmet buffet dinner, and thoughtful conversation.
