Great Bridge, Virginia, 18 June 2006.
The Battle of Great Bridge, fought on December 9, 1775, was an important event in the early stages of our nation’s struggle for independence. There were times in our history when it was widely known as a significant national event that greatly contributed to the cause of freedom. Now we have the opportunity to revitalize that heritage, and preserve for posterity the history of events in Hampton Roads that impacted the evolution of a diverse people into a union that cherishes a national independence and individual freedom.
