Our September guest speaker will be Mr. J. Michael Moore, an employee of the City of Newport News and curator for Lee Hall Mansion and historic Endview Plantation.


Mr. Moore received a Bachelor of Arts in history from Christopher Newport University and a Master of Arts in history from Old Dominion University. During his tenure with the city, he has curated exhibits at several local historic sites, developed historic signage, and led battlefield tours in Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia. Working with the Virginia Department of Historic Resources, he has placed Causey’s Mill, Endview Plantation, Lee’s Mill, and Whitaker’s Mill on the National Register of Historic Places. In addition, Mr. Moore is a popular lecturer for CNU’s LifeLong Learning Society. He has co-authored two books – The Peninsula Campaign of 1862: A Military Analysis in 2005 and Yorktown’s Civil War Siege: Drums Along the Warwick in 2012.


In addition, he has served as the editor and photographic editor for 12 books and has written articles for Virginia Cavalcade, North & South, Military Collector & Historian, and Mulberry Island Notes. In recognition of his work in public history, the Governor of Kentucky commissioned Moore a Kentucky Colonel in 2014. He is a Newport News native and resides in Historic Yorktown.


Join us at the Chesapeake Central Library on September 18, 2022, at 2:00 pm. Mr. Moore will lead us in a lively discussion about the battlefields and historic sites in the City of Newport News and their impact on one of the Civil War’s largest campaigns, the Peninsula Campaign of 1862. Don’t forget to bring a friend! Light refreshments will be provided.
