H. Edward Mann
The Queen and the USA: Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee in America
On July 26, 2012, H. Edward "Chip" Mann delivered a Banner Lecture entitled The Queen and the USA: Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee in America. Although the United States was born out of revolution against Great Britain, Americans have warmly greeted the reigning British monarch on each of her visits to this country. Queen Elizabeth II has made three state visits to the Commonwealth of Virginia. Each has rekindled appreciation of the common bonds between the United Kingdom and the United States: the rule of law, representative government, and economic freedom. The Queen and the USA was published to celebrate those ties on the occasion of Elizabeth II's diamond jubilee. With illustrations from his new book, H. Edward "Chip" Mann will describe the queen's special relationship with Virginia and all of America on the anniversary of her sixty years as queen of England.
