Liberty is the founding ideal of our nation. And nowhere is the struggle to retain the individual rights and liberties granted to the colonists more vivid than at historic St. John’s Church. Here at the Second Virginia Convention of March 1775, Patrick Henry’s masterful argument summoned Americans toward independence with the immortal words, “Give me liberty or give me death.” In recognition of its significance to our heritage, St. John’s Church was declared a National Historic Landmark.
Our educational programs bring to life the dramatic protests that led to the American Revolution. A teacher recently said—“when the guide told the students they occupied the space Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Richard Henry Lee and other famous Americans occupied, the students were in awe!”
