From Tragedy to Triumph

Sunday, September 22, 2019 at 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Hanover Tavern Foundation is pleased to present, “From Tragedy to Triumph, The Martha Ann Fields Story.” Written and performed by Valerie Davis, the story of Martha Ann Fields is that of a woman who would stop at nothing to make a better life for her family. Valerie Davis is unforgettable as she reveals this true story of love, longing, faith, betrayal and courage. Living with her eight young children as an enslaved cook, Martha Ann took a chance on her future one dark night in 1863. She gathered her children and crossed the Pamunkey River in the dead of night to reach Union lines and freedom. But that was just the beginning of her uniquely American story.
