Gather with the citizens of Williamsburg on May 15, 1776 to hear a reading of Virginia’s resolution calling for independence. Virginia will be the first colony to take this step, one that means treason against the King of England, but for now the Virginians will celebrate with music from the fifes and drums and with musket fire!
