It was here in Rich- mond that freedom fighter Patrick Henry delivered his "Give me liberty or give me death" speech the year the American Revolutonary War broke out. This is the city where Thomas Jefferson's Virginia Statute for Religious Free- dom was passed into law. It was also the capital of the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War. Today, it boasts the Common- wealth's largest conventon center and is increasingly recognized as a top tourism destnaton. ‰ By T.
