While in Richmond, Virginia, we spent some time at St. John's Episcopal church, where Patrick Henry said the following:
“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
The church is undergoing some renovations and additions.

There are several graves on the church grounds, but unfortunately, the headstones are so old that the engravings on them are unreadable. The plaque below lists some of the war patriots who are buried there.
Then on to a tour of one of Patrick Henry's homes in Scotchtown, Virginia.

That brings us up to date for now.
