Virginia’s complement to the National Park Service battlefield site is the Yorktown Victory Center. Much like the Jamestown Settlement and Williamsburg, the Victory Center is geared toward making history accessible via costumed interpreters, re-created buildings and hands-on, activity-style learning. Where the layout of the battlefield site is open, the Victory Center takes you through a well-plotted exhibition that includes an 18th-century newspaper copy of the Declaration of Independence. You’re then spit into a Continental Army camp that re-creates life for soldiers and civilians in the late-Colonial period. Tickets can be bought here that also provide access to Jamestown Settlement, and vice versa.
