RILL Instructor Robert Teagle

RILL Instructor Robert Teagle

“Robert Carter’s World,” a course sponsored by the Rappahannock Community College Educational Foundation’s Rappahannock Institute for Lifelong Learning, will be taught by Robert Teagle at Historic Christ Church in Irvington, from 1 to 3 p.m. on March 27, April 3, and April 10 (Tuesdays). This course will explore Robert “King” Carter’s role in Virginia life and the transatlantic world.

As the wealthiest and most powerful planter of early eighteenth-century Virginia, Carter had held virtually every important political position in the colony; he also served as agent of the Northern Neck Proprietary, and as a churchwarden of Christ Church Parish. Carter’s 300,000-acre estate included 48 plantations and several mills and storehouses, and he owned more than 700 slaves.

Robert Teagle is the education director and curator at the Foundation for Historic Christ Church in Irvington. He earned a bachelor’s degree in history from the College of William and Mary and a master’s degree in American history from Virginia Tech.

Advance registration, with a tuition payment of $35, is required to take this course.
