January 16th, 2015

was the 190th Anniversary of the
Birth of George Edward Pickett.

Save this date:

June 7th, 2015

To commemorate the very special occasion of the 190th birthday of George E. Pickett, we are planning a very special and very nautical day for Pickett Society members and all others who wish to attend.

We will board a tour boat at Jordan Point Marina on the James River and cast off at 10:00 a.m., June 7, 2015. Our skipper is a professional and is very well acquainted with the James River.  Additionally, on board with us will be a seasoned guide who will be giving us a historical perspective of the sites and history of the James River during the War Between the States. Our tour will last for approximately three hours, arriving back at Jordan Point at 1:00 p.m.

Our view from the river will include too many Civil War historic sites to list here, but suffice it to say that the tour will be educational and memorable.  Bring a camera and field glasses!  

Lunch will be at Dockside Restaurant located just a ½ mile from Jordan Point. The Pickett Society has dined there in the past and their bill of fare is delicious.

Due to the size of our river craft, we must limit the number of participants to only 26.  When all details, including prices, are finalized, it will be posted on this Web site. The notification will include a reservation form for those of you who wish to use the US Mail, otherwise, please use the PayPal feature. The posting on the Web shall occur within thirty days, so if you wish to be part of this special commemorative tour, please notify us promptly.

First come, first served!
