THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE GUESTS ALIGHT FROM THE POST CHAISE AT THE RALEIGH TAVERN Owned by the Carroll family of Virginia, this coach was made before the Revolution. It has been repaired, lined, and repainted with the same care used in restoring the colonial buildings. © National Geographic Society Finlay Photographs by Luis Marden THERE IS ONE CUSTOM THAT TIME HAS NOT CHANGED Forbears of the pickaninnies who are up to their ears in watermelon probably received a similar treat from the soldiers of the Revolution. Costumes donned by the two men for this picture are of the very late Revolutionary period. In the Williamsburg restoration attendants in all of the exhibition buildings wear colonial dress.
