It was a simple line that would brand itself into the pages of American history: “I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!” You’ll get chills when you enter the (actual!) church where American War revolutionary, Patrick Henry, gave his famous speech to his countrymen ending in this breathtaking moment.

St. John’s Episcopal Church — located in the historic Church Hill district of Richmond — provides tours, reenactments, and sermons on Sundays. Open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m.
