It was in Williamsburg, Virginia, that American independence--and democracy--took root. Based on Colonial Williamsburg's acclaimed street theater program, Revolutionary City tells the story of Williamsburg during the American Revolution. Spanning the years from 1774 to 1781, Revolutionary City chronicles the collapse of royal government in Virginia and the triumphs and travails of its people during the war. Some of these people, such as Patrick Henry, Benedict Arnold, and George and Martha Washington, are well-known. Others, such as Barbry Hoy, the wife of a carpenter-turned-soldier, and Gowan Pamphlet, an African-American preacher, do not appear in most traditional histories. All these-men and women, patriots and Tories, free and enslaved-took part in the events that turned the people of Williamsburg from subjects of a king into citizens of a republic. More than 50 full-color photos. The fates of the main characters after 1781. A behind-the-scenes look at the making of the program.
