One of our stops on our field trip was Williamsburg, a place I didn't mind seeing again. Certainly the showpiece is the Governor's Palace, which was built in 1721 and took 16 years to construct. Seven governors lived in this house, including Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson. It was destroyed by fire in 1781.
I can't imagine the wives had too much to do with this little outpost, based on the decorations. Hundreds and hundreds of swords and guns hang on the walls in various patterns. Very manly!
