History. Small church where Patrick Henry gave the speech we're all familiar with. The young man who gave it was very believable and knew his facts.

St. John's is the oldest church in the city of Richmond, Virginia. Daily guided tours are offered and are quite informative. Reenactments of Patrick Henry's "Liberty Or Death" speech occur every Sunday during the summer months. Don't miss this when coming to Richmond.

It was striking to see parishioners standing around talking to one another after Sunday service. The vicar was very much there with them. And the mix of old and young, White and people Of Color, Of Means and not so wealthy. It was gereat.
