Healthcare Org 1, 3.20 (R) [FUN] Lesson Three Virtual Field Trip

Everyone loves a road trip/field trip so each lesson of the course includes a "virtual field trip" to the often hidden places of interest on the web. Lesson Three's virtual field trip is to Colonial Williamsburg in Williamsburg, Virginia. Prior to the American Revolutionary War (before the governance dispute between the American colonists and the British monarchy), Williamsburg was the center of governance (the capital) of the Virginia Colony (1699-1776). From 1776 to 1780, Williamsburg was the capital of the new American Commonwealth of Virginia. In 1780, Richmond became the capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Williamsburg's time as as center of governance is recreated in Colonial Williamsburg whose mission is: "to be a center for history and citizenship, encouraging national and international audiences to learn from the past through the preservation, restoration, and presentation of 18th-century Williamsburg and the study, interpretation, and teaching of America's founding democratic principles." The video provides a brief orientation to the activities and facilities in Colonial Williamsburg. The facilities include a number of museums and collections as well as online collections and webcams.
