Neighborhood: Colonial Williamsburg Area
Overview

Rising to revolution, the Continental Army led by General Washington encamped at Yorktown. This re-creation is just a short distance from the original site of the battle that won the American Revolution in 1781. Re-enactors at Yorktown demonstrate musket drills, colonial cooking and grim war-time medical practices. At a model 18th-century farm, you can help weed the garden, spin flax into thread and watch costumed interpreters cook in a colonial kitchen adjacent to the farmhouse. In the galleries, children can play in 18th-century clothes and participate in activities like making woodblock rubbings. Artifacts, including those from an excavated British ship, complete this comprehensive view of military life during the American Revolution. Just one of the many sights that make up the Historic Triangle (Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown).
