Yorktown Victory Center, Yorktown, Virginia. June 19, 2007.

I’ve had a chance to work on photos over the past several days and came across pictures that were taken when Betsy and I visited Virginia in 2007.  We went to celebrate our anniversary and to visit Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown.

The first place we visited when we got to the Colonial National Historical Park was the Yorktown Victory Center.  The Victory Center is a living-history museum that helps bring the American Revolution to life.   In addition to a film about the Siege of Yorktown, there are re-enactors in a Continental Army encampment who help bring that period to life.

We enjoyed our time at the Victory Center and found it to be very interesting.  Afterwards we saw a little of the riverfront in the town of Yorktown.  It was a very nice beginning of our historical vacation.

    Those are great photos – I especially love the one of you in the tent. We visited Colonial Williamsburg a few years ago and really enjoyed it. Haven’t been to Jamestown or Yorktown yet, but we’re hoping to get down there one of these days. Looks like an interesting trip.

    That sounds interesting….may have to go there sometimes. And of course your picture of Cades Cove below is great. I love to drive that loop and look for animals and go into the old buildings.
