“A national historic spot”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

This is the site of Patrick Henry's famous "Give me liberty or give me death oration." Not only can you stand in the spot where history was made, you can see reenactments of the event.

“Great historic site!”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

We had a great time on our little tour of the church. Our tour guide was a lovely woman and she did a wonderful job of explaining everything. I only wish I could be there when they do reenactments of Patrick Henry's famous speech! Definitely do this if you're in Richmond and love history.

“Must see if you're a history buff”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

History is all around you in Richmond and this is one of Richmond's high points. Church yard is worthy of your time, as well.

“Walk through History”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Great place to "live" a little history. Well preserved. It is moving to stand in a church where such a important speech was given. History buffs will enjoy.

“History alive!”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

To walk where our forefathers have walked is priceless. Besides Sundays in the summer for the reenactment of Patrick Henry's "give me liberty" speach, we've also attended a nighttime tour of the cemetary. Even your kids will love the history during the reenactment which is so real you forget it's not 1776! And you are sitting in the exact seats the participants of the day did.
