About the book:

Thousands of people each year experience life in eighteenth-century Virginia by visiting Colonial Williamsburg, one of America's premier historical restorations. That is not what the founders had in mind when they opened this museum in 1932. Their aim was to build a shrine to promote American valuesæindividualism, democracy, and representative governmentæat a time when they felt these beliefs were being eroded. As Anders Greenspan demonstrates in this lucid analysis, Colonial Williamsburg's evolving presentation of history offers an excellent means of understanding many social and political changes in twentieth-century America.
