This is going to be
an event you will never forget (just like that first
night solo landing). Be prepared to meet the
townspeople, trades people, shopkeepers, political
figures, women, and the enslaved who call Williamsburg
home—and learn of their hopes, struggles, and fears
in those uncertain times. As you explore the
challenges of daily life set against the backdrop of
revolution, look for the many opportunities to play
your role as a citizen of the Revolutionary City.
Take part as American colonists make the
life-altering choice of
whether to remain loyal to the British king or to
fight for a free and independent nation. Join an
angry mob as it storms the Governor’s
Palace to demand the return of the
colony’s gunpowder. Get caught up in the stories of
struggle and hardship. Witness the arrival of news
of the Declaration of Independence and join the
debate over the meaning of “All men are created
equal.” Be there as Benedict Arnold occupies the
town and imposes martial law on its people.
