It was along the James that British and Native American cultures collided and, in a twisted paradox, the seeds of democracy and slavery were sown side by side. This innovative history invites us all to look into these restless waters in a way that connects us to our past and reminds us of who we are as Americans. The culture crafted by Virginia's learned aristocrats, merchants, farmers, and frontiersmen gave voice to the cause of the American Revolution and provided a vision for the fledgling independent nation's future.

We punched toeholds into the diamond waves with our ridiculous summer shoes. We tottered along ice-rimed cliffs.
