Liberty Day Preparations
Nathan (Thomas Nelson, Jr) and Jeremy (Richard Henry Lee) show off their new wigs at a rehearsal for the 2005 Liberty Day festivities! Mark your calendars now for March 19th, and plan on being there! Any of you out-of-towners, let us know if you want to come and we'll find a place for you to stay (ie. our house)! If you don't know what Liberty Day is ... well, then you've really got to come and join us. Simply put, March 23rd is the anniversary of Patrick Henry's Liberty or Death speech and that's what we commemorate each year. We reenact the entire debate surrounding Henry's speech - which debate culminates in the giving of Patrick Henry's entire speech. It is really an incredible performance. Surrounding that highlight of the evening are a bunch of patriotic, historic, musical, non-musical, inspirational, educational, and generally fun presentations!
