Overview

Hanover was the center of the "Great Awakening" of the American Revolution led by resident Reverend Samuel Davies. Patrick Henry was born here, studied law here and lived here at the time of his famous liberty speech. His residence, Scotchtown, is open to the public. Hanover was also the birthplace of Henry Clay, another important figure during the Revolution. During the Civil War, the bloody Seven Days Battles took place here. The battlefields are now National Parks. Take 64 east to Route 360 (Mechanicsville Turnpike) to reach Hanover. It is about a 20-minute drive from Richmond.
