Winston Churchill. Speech to the Virginia General Assembly, March 8, 1946
Shown here is the emended reading copy, in Churchill's characteristic "psalm form," of his March 8, 1946, speech to the Virginia General Assembly. He referred to his forthcoming visit to the restored colonial town of Williamsburg: "This was the cradle of the Gt. Republic in which more than 150 years afterwards the strong champions of freedom were found to have been nursed."
