The monument pictured below stands
in the courtyard of the Colonial Capitol Building in Williamsburg, Virginia.
Here and across the street at the Raleigh Tavern, Members of the House
of Burgesses adopted resolves condemning the actions of the British toward
their North American colonies. These actions, famous in our history,
paved the way for the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
