A woodcut of the original Colonial Capitol building from Benson J.
Lossing's Pictorial Field-Book of the Revolution (1855).



"This is from an engraving in Howe's Historical Collections of Virginia,
page 329. Mr. Howe obtained the drawing from a lady of Williamsburg, to whose patriotic
taste our countrymen are indebted for a representation of the edifice which was the
focus of rebellion in Virginia." (Lossing, 1855)
