In Williamsburg, the people of Virginia will be among the first Americans to officially call for independence. On the east side of town, visit the Revolutionary City neighborhood to see some of the city’s most important forums for political discussion, including the Capitol, the Raleigh Tavern, and the Virginia Gazette Printing Office. Just west of the Revolutionary City, visit the Armoury neighborhood to see the smithy, taverns, shops, and houses—and where the Public Armoury will be completed by 1779.
