“Give me liberty or give me death.”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

Must see just to stand on the land that Jefferson, Patrick Henry, etc. stood on.
I did not take the tour as the church has changed so much there is not much of the original left but do ask the people in the gift shop. They are very friendly and will point out the original building.

“St. John's Church”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

We moved to the Richmond area several years ago and go to St. John's every reinactment of the 2nd VA convention on Sunday's during the summer. Definitely worth the visit.

“Must go for "Give me liberty or give me death" reenactment!”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

I have been to two reenactments of the historic colonial era meeting. I am sure to go again. Arrive early because the line may be long. The acting is outstanding and you can mingle with the 'stars' after the performance. It is very exciting to see history come alive.

“Give me liberty and an old church”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Nice little gift shop and the simple old church itself. Many old graves in the church yard. The history is thick here.
