We started our tour of colonial Yorktown with the < href="https://www.nps.gov/york/index.htm">museum of the battlefield. From the British battlements, you can look out over the field, and imagine the lines of soldiers firing muskets and advancing.

Joy and I love visiting old houses. The house of Thomas Nelson stands in Yorktown in a prominent position. The rooms have tall ceilings like most grand house of the period. The walls are coated with thick paint. The house seems barren without furniture, but the window seats are open for sitting.
