After breakfast we departed for perhaps the most poignant battle of the American Revolution, The Battle of Yorktown.
Some of our stops included Redoubts 9 and 10, the Moore House, Surrender Field, the Continental Army encampment, and finally the Yorktown Victory Monument.
After a fabulous lunch of fresh seafood along the beach of Yorktown, our group visited the Yorktown Victory Center to attend a “Farmer to Solider” program. The program walked our group through the life of a colonial farmer and gave a detailed insight into the activities of a solider. We participated in methods of loading a musket, marching in proper formation, and witnessed an artillery being fired.
We finished the day observing the cave in which British General Cornwallis hid from the Americans and French along the shore of the York River.
