Ball for Lady Dunmore Virginia

The students of Washington Allston School in Cambridge, Massachusetts put on quite a performance in "Lay Dunmore's Ball," in 1906. The ball was given in her honor by the House of Burgesses on the 27th of May, 1774. George Washington attended as noted in his journal: May 27 Dined at the Treasurer's, and went to the ball given by the House of Burgesses to Lady Dunmore.For the whole skinny visit https://www.history.org/almanack/people/bios/bioldun.cfm
