Were Governor Berkeley and his allies corrupt? How could free indentured servants and poor farmers scratch a living in 1670s Virginia? Learn about both and more from our costumed historical interpreters as members of Bacon's Rebellion under Captain Rookings occupy the "Arthur Allen Brick House" in Surry County. Learn how the events in 1676 and 1677 Virginia led to dramatic trends toward race-based slavery, Virginia Indian relations, and struggles between western and eastern Virginians. Attendance to the day's events is included in general admission to the Historic Site.
