Thanksgiving in Williamsburg…2008…

Around the town…http://www.colonialwilliamsburg.com/visit/eventsAndExhibits/calendar/index.cfm

Order In The Court…a re-enactment of an 18th- century trial…where the decorum was in the forefront…order was maintained…those who came for help were treated to true representation…those needing reassurance of an ongoing problem were offered common sense along with common courtesy…and the woman who came once again as she had so many times prior was listened to …imagine that!….

A Conversation with Patrick Henry…answering the historic questions…on slaves…Indians…and taxes…from a man here from New York…who said he was a descendant of Mr Henry’s…no revisionist history here..no equal PC time…the straight talk…with a purpose…to see the real history is not swept away…along with amusing looks at what has happened since…

A Public Audience with George…in the Capitol west yard…lots more talk on tea and taxes…surrounded by the young …happily wearing their period costumes…boys holding wooden guns…girls…with their American Girls collectible dolls…actually interested…in something that is not electronic…for a change….

A visit up and down the streets…the blacksmith…the printer…the milliner…the apothecary shop…the barber…the grocery…and on and on…

Thanksgiving will be at the Kings Arms….for a traditional fare….

Followed up by evening theater..to see ‘Wit’s Last stake”…a classic 18th-century farce…

Faithful readers…back to the scuttle… the local papers…1 or 2 or 3?…..tomorrow… day 2…in Williamsburg…

more to come…
