Williamsburg, cont.

One of the coolest things about Williamsburg is their drum and fife bands. You can check out a video at the end of the blog.
We also learned about colonial games....

And animals too. We saw chickens, cows, horses, and pigeons (being raised for the governers dinner table, sadly enough!) They run the town as if it were a normal day, so you can go and see the blacksmith working, or catch some announcements about England closing the harbor in Boston because of the tea fiasco up there. In this time in history, everybody is deciding if they are going to be a loyalist with the King or join up with the Patriots and start a war.


So here are some clips, from the band and then fireworks that night. Love you all!! Happy Independence Day!!
