Politics in Colonial Virginia
This site from Colonial Williamsburg
is filled with primary source documents important to pre-Revolution and post-Independence of the United States. By perusing these pieces of history you can trace the path the colonists followed to revolution, and then the principles the new United States imbedded into its founding documents. One document that is often overlooked is the Articles of Confederation. Washington’s Farewell Address is another important document, the substance of which still resonates today.
