St. John’s Church

Located in Richmond, Virginia, St. John’s Church is one of the oldest operating churches in America.  Historically, it became a meeting house for the Virginia delegates from Williamsburg.  It was here in 1775 that Patrick Henry delivered his most famous oration, “Give me liberty, or give me death!”  One of our founding fathers are buried here, along with Edgar Allen Poe’s mother.

“For my own part I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery…It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country…There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us…” ~ Patrick Henry
