The 400th anniversary of the first assembly of 20 "burgesses," which convened at Jamestown on July 30 - August 4, 1619, is marked with a weekend of themed tours, interpretive programs and military exercises. Re-enactments bring to life the beginning of representative government in America and the antecedent of today's Virginia General Assembly, the oldest legislative body in the Western Hemisphere.
