    As 1776 approaches, Williamsburg is about to be a city at war. A safe distance away in Richmond, Patrick Henry is thundering, "Give me liberty or give me death!" The royal governor has fled his palace in Williamsburg. By the New Year, the city is an armed camp. Big moments.

    But think of these moments too—a milliner packing up her shop because she can't import goods to sell. An enslaved mother and daughter bedding down for the night in a cold attic and deciding whether to flee to find their own freedom.

    It takes all these moments to make up the fabric of history. With the latest thinking from the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation's historians and scholars and with meticulously reenacted photographs, the full tapestry begins to be revealed—giving us a new look at the American Revolution.
