Overview

Just in time for the 400th anniversary of Jamestown, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation offers its own comprehensive guide to Virginia's "Historic Triangle." It was in 1607 at Jamestown that John Smith and his fellow Englishmen established the first permanent settlement in North America. It was here that Smith met Pocahontas, that the first representative assembly in the New World convened, and that the first African slaves arrived. Just a few miles down the road is Williamsburg, where men like George Washington, Patrick Henry, George Mason, and Thomas Jefferson conceived a new nation. The third point in the Triangle, also just a few miles away, is Yorktown, where French and American troops under Washington's command forced the British surrender and won the nation's independence. If you are among the millions who will visit in 2007 and beyond, this lively and lavishly illustrated guide will tell you everything you need to know about the places where America was born, along with all the practical information you'll need to make the most of your trip.
