Revolutionary War history isn’t hard to come by here in Virginia. Whether it be a building whose function was a makeshift hospital, or a museum dedicated to war history, there’s something for every sort of historian here in the Old Dominion. Yet if you’re looking for something a bit more obscure, you’ll enjoy taking a trip to Yorktown Battlefield National Park and hiking the loop. This gorgeous riverfront trail is beautiful in its own rite, yet becomes all the more fascinating when you learn of its important history and the relics that still remain.
Yorktown Battlefield is located at 1000 Colonial Parkway, Yorktown, VA23690. Have you visited this fascinating historical landmark before? If so, we’d love to hear about your visit. For more information, you can visit the official webpage by clicking here.
