     RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Civil War has dominated tourism promotion in Virginia in recent years, but the road to independence is about to get some additional attention.
     Tourism and hospitality officials on Thursday announced an expansion of the Road to Revolution State Heritage Trail. The trail traces the state's earliest path to independence.
     The trail features Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, James Monroe's birthplace in Westmoreland County, the Hanover County Courthouse, Yorktown, and St. John's Church in Richmond, where Patrick Henry uttered the famous words "Give me liberty or give me death" in 1775.
     A spring travell brochure, a website and social media tools also were unveiled Thursday.
