Williamsburg, a city in the U.S. State of Virginia, was capitol of the Virginia Colony from 1699 to 1780 and played a significant role in the American Revolution. It forms the "Historic Triangle" together with Jamestown and Yorktown. Its heart is Colonial Williamsburg, a historic district and living-history museum where actors in period costume depict daily Colonial life in the streets, stores and workshops.
