Patrick Henry at State Capitol

The St. John's Church Foundation held it's celebration of Patrick Henry's birthday with a reenactment of his "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death" speech at the Virginia State Capitol for the first time in history. After the event, Governor McDonnell and his wife hosted a reception at the Governor's Mansion. Below are images from the event, held earlier this summer . I think the reenactors enjoyed the chance to use the House of Delegates chamber. Everyone enjoyed the reception later at the Governor's Mansion.
