Colonial Williamsburg

Back to Colonial Williamsburg Historic Area.  Williamsburg was the capitol of  British Virginia before it was a state.  It had significant impact in gaining independence from Britain in the Revolutionary War.   This is a living history area with many actors in period costumes playing their parts in gaining independence from Britain.  Most of the buildings have been recreated from historic records as the originals had been destroyed.     We toured the old Capitol Building, the jail, a tavern, and a few other buildings before having a Virginia Ham & Cheese sandwich for lunch.  

Capitol Building

Fifes & Drums March, and yes, they did play Yankee Doodle.
