Special Events

Open to the Public

Event Ticket Required

Join the Idea of America Network for an interactive, onsite seminar at Colonial Williamsburg. The Idea of America framework views U.S. history as an enduring "Great Debate." At this seminar, we'll dive deeply into Our Values, Our Legacy, and Our Future, as explored in a book written by John Oliver Wilson. 

How do we balance the values Americans share: law and ethics, freedom and equality, unity and diversity, common wealth, and private wealth? The Idea of America Seminar explores how these values have shaped our American identity and how you can apply them to the fundamental issues facing our nation today. 

Program registration includes:

  • A presentation by Nation Builders Thomas Jefferson and Martha Washington
  • Colonial Williamsburg admission tickets
  • Tours of major historic sites such as the Capitol and the Governor's Palace
  • Three nights lodging in historic accommodations, including breakfast each morning
  • A copy of The Idea of America: Our Values, Our Legacy, Our Future
