The legendary speech ?Give me liberty or give me death? rang inside the hallowed halls of this humble church in Richmond, Virginia. It was a call that swayed the votes of a hundred statesmen that congregated inside this holy ground. It was a call that turned the tides of American Revolution and wrote history as we know it.

St. John?s Episcopal Church is the site where the Second Virginia Convention was held. Among the American founding fathers that gathered inside were George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry, the leader who uttered the immortal quote.

The church was named a National Historical Landmark in 1961. History buffs can visit the church for the reenactment of the Second Virginia Convention. Souvenir shops and tours are also featured in the church grounds.
