On March 8th, 1946, Winston Churchill arrived in Richmond, accompanied by General Eisenhower, to address the Virginia General Assembly. In his speech, he mentioned an upcoming visit to Williamsburg and said, ""This was the cradle of the Great Republic in which more than 150 years afterwards the strong champions of freedom were found to have been nursed." A great man speaking of other great men (and women).
