Since 1976, St. John’s Church Foundation has presented historical reenactments of the Second Virginia Convention of March 1775 at its original location. Professional actors in 1770s' attire portray nine delegates, including Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington, who engage in the debates and arguments of the Second Virginia Convention, which culminate with Patrick Henry’s immortal “Give me liberty or give me death!” speech.
