In celebration of the 70th anniversary of Winston Churchill’s 1946 address to a joint session of the General Assembly in the House Chamber, the Virginia General Assembly and the Capitol Square Preservation Council developed the exhibit “A Stand for Peace: Winston Churchill and the Call for Unity.”

The exhibit explores Winston Churchill's Virginia visit through the lens of Frank Dementi, the official photographer chosen by Churchill's party, and the correspondence among Churchill, state officials, and the public. An interactive media kiosk encourages visitors to read the speech Churchill delivered that day, written in his own shorthand.
