WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) - Colonial Williamsburg is exploring the role of religion in the creation of America.

The historic attraction will explore the topic during events throughout April.

Officials say the ideas fostered by the American War of Independence revolutionized the relationship between faith and government by allowing the free exercise of religion.

The events include a discussion on the relationship between church and state and the views of Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry.
