Colonial Williamsburg: Experience Living History

Colonial WilliamsburgDo you, like me, subscribe to the idea that America needs to return to its founding principles? As our culture now thinks differently about the past, fewer young Americans believe that our nation is still the best land of hope, opportunity, and community. So we must enable students to learn from the Founders themselves what is right, true, good, and beautiful about America.

There’s no better place to experience American history than Colonial Williamsburg – an early American community returned to its 18th-century appearance – also known as “the largest living history museum in the world.” There you can discover history brought to life, learn about colonial times, and meet the people who contributed to the founding of America.

Bill Weldon, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation’s manager of public history development, says their mission is “that people be provoked to think about citizenship.”
