|George outside Governor's Palace gate|
Things pretty well shut down at 5:00, so we hiked back to the truck. George had had his fill, but I hadn't so I went back Wednesday while George went to play golf. I got to see the "Revolutionary City" dramatizations that we got there too late to see on Monday. All over town actors dressed up like merchants and townspeople talking about the events that were affecting them.
We started out in front of Raleigh Tavern, then followed the actors up to the Capitol, over behind the coffeehouse and then back to the tavern. The program that day was about the Challenge of Independence, and was about events between 1776-1781. There was one skit about recruiting soldiers for the militia; one with Benedict Arnold after he'd gone over to the British; one about how the revolution was affecting slaves; another with General Washington just before the Battle of Yorktown.
Pretty painless way to learn history! More pictures of Colonial Williamsburg
