The Military in Yorktown Tour

Saturday, June 19, 2021

There is no better way to experience Historic Yorktown than taking a stroll with a professional historian! Tour guides Maureen Wiese and J. Michael Moore of Hampton Roads Tours will provide interesting information and insights not typically found in history books.

Yorktown has had a military presence in Yorktown since its establishment in the 1600s. This walking tour will include Fort Yorktown, the Virginia Militia during the Revolutionary War, the Siege of Yorktown, the Surveyor Battle of 1813, the 2nd Siege of Yorktown during the Civil War, Yorktown's role in World War I and World War II through present day.

This tour will begin at Mobjack Bay Coffee Roasters. Attendees must be able to walk at a leisurely pace for an hour, with stops along the way. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Masks required when standing closer than six feet to another guest, as well as inside Mobjack Bay Coffee Roasters.
