  • More to LOVE on the Road to Revolution

    by Casey | Posted on March 15th, 2013

    A new nation wanted a revolution – a clean break from “security, taxation, representation, and political authority,” reads RoadtoRevolution.org, and it’s in Virginia that you can walk this road to see our forefathers’ marks of progress.

    St. John’s Church

    The Road to Revolution Heritage Trail runs from the Mount Vernon home of our first president, George Washington, to the favorite estate and final resting place of the “Orator of the Revolution” himself, Patrick Henry, in Brookneal. A total of 20 establishments dating from 1699 Colonial Williamsburg to President James Monroe’s 1799 Ash Lawn-Highland are found on this trail.

    In early 2013 the trail was expanded, doubling in size. Plan to travel the Road to Revolution by visiting the sites, as well as taking in the annual “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” Anniversary Reenactment at St. John’s Church in Richmond. It’s happening Sunday, March 16, 2014 at 1 p.m. The reenactment is free with a suggested donation of $5. Seating is first-come, first-served.
