Patrick Henry National Memorial

Text Box #4)
The flags of the Commonwealth Courtyard honor Patrick Henry's election as the first governor of Virginia on June 29, 1776, when the boundaries of the commonwealth extended from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mississippi River. The Grand Union flag flew over the Governor's Palace in Williamsburg during Henry's first term as governor. Kentucky became an independent commonwealth in 1792. Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin were created from Virginia's original territory between 1803 and 1848. West Virginia became an independent state during the Civil War.

The bronze bust of Patrick Henry by Frederick William Sievers was cast from the original model (now preserved at Scotstown) for the bust commissioned in 1932 for the Virginia State Capitol. Another replica is exhibited in the Patrick Henry Executive Office Building in Richmond.

(Text Box #3 shows ten flags, which are the United States, Virginia 1776, Grand Union 1776, Kentucky 1792, Ohio 1803, Indiana 1816, Michigan 1837, Wisconsin, 1848, and West Virginia 1863)
