Colonial Williamsburg promoted by Tom Hanks


Award-winning actor and producer Tom Hanks has described Colonial Williamsburg as an important part of the American experience in a video public service announcement produced by a Los Angeles production company. Mr. Hanks, who narrates the 30-second video, appears on screen near the end of the announcement with the Capitol in the Historic Area in the background.

          The half-minute message encapsulates the American experience using Historic Area scenes to portray the American dream of land ownership; the ingenuity of historic tradesmen creating products in small, hands-on manufactories; fine craftsmanship as skilled cabinetmakers fashion intricate furniture; the origins of American justice in our early courtrooms; and the perseverance of the enslaved in seeking and securing their eventual freedom. A gathering of Revolutionary-era patriots personifies the “very idea of America itself.”

          The video may be viewed on Colonial Williamsburg’s Web site, www.history.org, at the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center and on in-room television throughout the hotels of the Colonial Williamsburg Resort Collection.
