Our vacation of historic Virginia comes to an end with the end of the Revolutionary War. We visited historic Yorktown, tracing the path of the battle, then the surrender. We explored French earthworks and American redoubts and old cannon.
If you happened to watch the History Channel’s Sons of Liberty, you would have seen them using the redoubts below near the culmination of the miniseries.

Pictured below is part of Surrender Field, where British troops relinquished their weapons to General Washington’s army. It’s a beautifully green area where a vital moment in our nation’s history occurred.
