We've posted the final video in our Coffeehouse Conversations series, which is entitled A Grand Opening. This episode shows the events surrounding the Opening Ceremony for Charlton's Coffeehouse, back on November 20th. It features thoughts on the project's history and goals by Forrest E. Mars, Chairman of the Foundation Board of Trustees Richard G. Tilghman, and Foundation President Colin Campbell.
In addition to these words on the Reconstruction, this episode includes footage of other events from the opening, including a performance of the Stamp Act Riot scene, demonstrations of Historic Trades, and an appearance by the Colonial Williamsburg Fife & Drums. Coffeehouse Conversations is produced by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation's division of Productions, Publications, and Learning Ventures.
The video is 4 minutes and 5 seconds in length, and requires Adobe Flash® to view. If you don't have Adobe Flash installed, you can download a free version from Adobe's website.
