Re-enactment March to take place August 13, 2016

RE-ENACTMENT OF THE HISTORIC VOTING RIGHTS MARCH OF 1965           

A historical event occurred in Lunenburg County, Virginia on August 3, 1965 with a demonstration march to the Lunenburg County Courthouse by nearly 300 local citizens.  The march was in support of the impending passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act (August 6) and to protest the existence of the Poll Tax.  The march was also intended to protest inadequate voter registration hours, but on July 31, 1965 the Electoral Board of Lunenburg County decided to grant adequate hours for voter registration just a few days before the demonstration. Grateful demonstrators displayed signs thanking the Electoral Board for “granting adequate hours for voter registration.” The march began at the First Baptist Church, 821 Lunenburg Avenue, in Victoria and continued to the courthouse where the marchers lined the streets for a short time and then continued to the Tussekiah Baptist Church nearby to end the demonstration with song and prayer.  

On Saturday, August 13, 2016, members of the Lunenburg County community plan to conduct a re-enactment to commemorate the historic Voting Rights March of 1965 to the Lunenburg Courthouse that occurred over fifty years ago. Individuals and organizations of the county have pledged their support of this event and the resolution to recognize Mr. Nathaniel Lee Hawthorne, Sr.
