To visit Williamsburg in Virginia is to take a step back in time. Back to a ‘Revolutionary City’ where between 1775 and 1781 the inhabitants had to face a life changing decision – remain loyal to a government or start a new nation based on principles never tested before. On July 25 1776 the citizens of Williamsburg gathered outside the courthouse to hear the mayor read aloud the Declaration of Independence. The decision was made. All that remained was to defeat the British!
