Importance of Williamsburg

Williamsburg is one of the most important settlements because it was the center of government , education and culture. For example the famous college of William and Mary was built in Williamsburg. This was a school for boys and hosted famous men like George Washington , Thomas Jefferson , James Monroe and John Tyler.

Another reason is that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson discussed politics or to be specific meetings for the people who wanted to be free from the British in the Raleigh Tavern in Williamsburg. This discussion was way before the American Revolution occured
