Colonial Williamsburg’s Daily Dispatch offers four daily features in one free app. Keep history at your fingertips with Word of the Day, Photo of the Day, Fact of the Day, and Today in the 1770s. With this app, you’ll access a quartet of resources:
Word of the Day delivers an 18th-century word and definition each day. Work words like “tippling” and “allarums” into conversation and delight your friends.
Photo of the Day displays a photo from the restored Historic Area. Linger over elegant landscapes and intimate details in this daily snapshot taken by our staff photographers.
Fact of the Day shares things you never knew and things you’ve forgotten about 18th-century history. Facts from daily life and national politics shine a new light on the colonial era.
Today in the 1770s pulls from the headlines of 200 years ago. Check each day for a news item either mundane or momentous and keep up with the pace of 18th-century Williamsburg.
