  • Richmond Virginia is our next stop on our 400-Years-of-History Road trip across the Commonwealth of Virginia series. We are exploring St. John’s Church, one of the most important buildings in the American Revolution.

    We are exploring St. John’s Church in Richmond Virginia. In this small wooden church on a knoll overlooking old Richmond, the Second Virginia Convention was held in March 1775. One hundred Virginia colonial leaders, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Richard Henry Lee, heard Patrick Henry’s resolution to put the colony into a state of defense against England. Historian, Rita Bailey is one of the costumed interpreters. Rita is speaking to a group of visitors from the front of the church, below the pulpit.
