Battle Of The Virginia Capes

Date:
1781
Creator:
V. Zveg

On September 5, 1781, the French navy blocked the British navy from getting to the isolated British soldiers, commanded by General Charles Cornwallis, in Virginia. In addition, the American and French infantries freely encircled Cornwallis' escape. The Battle of the Virginia Capes effectively sealed off the British army at Yorktown, and ensured the Franco-American victory.

Captain Charles Ridgely

Date:
1767
Creator:
John Hesselius

Captain Charles Ridgely (1733-1790) was the builder and first master of Hampton. A ship’s captain in his early career (note the telescope depicted in his hand), he retired from the sea and assumed control of the family iron business in 1763. He also operated a mercantile business in Baltimore Town; owned vast farms and plantations cultivating grain and vegetable crops; bred cattle, pigs, and thoroughbred horses; planted commercial orchards; and operated mills and quarries. Profits from his Northampton ironworks during the Revolutionary War and from confiscated Loyalist properties helped fund the building of  Ridgely’s “house in the forest” beginning in 1783. Captain Ridgely had resided there for little over a year at the time of his death.
