If you want to truly understand politics, this would be the perfect event to appreciate America’s (fascinating!) beginnings. On September 17 on the lawns of Colonial Williamsburg’s Art Museums, come celebrate the adoption of the U.S. Constitution by the delegates to the Constitutional Convention. In-depth discussions and the best of Colonial Williamsburg’s historical interpretation will bring the history of America’s governing document to life.
This is the 235th anniversary of this cherished founding document, and Colonial Williamsburg is celebrating with this free event that includes musical works by eminent American composers played by: the USAF Heritage of America Band, the USA Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Band, the US Fleet Forces Band, and the Marine Detachment Navy School of Music. The program will also feature Colonial Williamsburg interpreters Ron Carnegie as George Washington and Bryan Austin as James Madison. Bring a lawn chair to listen and learn comfortably!
Colonial Williamsburg is committed to sharing a more complete history of America in an effort to allow all audiences to connect with the past. Ongoing research has uncovered the stories of early Americans with all different backgrounds, races, gender identities, and social levels. More recently, this research has begun to address the silence around LGBTQIA+ history.
Historians and actor-interpreters in Colonial Williamsburg are all about expanding our collective understanding of the past by studying the people who lived through it. Specialized programming in October will create opportunities to better understand the universal human experiences of gender, identity, and the body. Click here to explore special programs and additional resources and readings (they’ll amaze you!).
Few Halloween traditions are more exciting and authentic as Colonial Williamsburg’s Haunting on Duke of Gloucester Street. Evening programs, ghost tours, spooky carriage rides, museum talks, and special events will be going on all month long, so stay tuned as Halloween draws closer!
