Photo of the Week #29 & #30

I was traveling last week and didn't get around to posting. I was in Virginia on business and had an afternoon to explore. I discovered that I was close to Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown. I only had time to visit Jamestown and Yorktown.

Jamestown consists of a very nice historical museum and recreations of the fort, Indian settlement, and ships. At Yorktown, there is the Victory Center and Yorktown National Park. I went through the Victory Center and drove through some of the National Park.

This image is one of the Redoubts. I think it is Redoubt 9. You can see an aerial view here.

This image is the surrender field where Cornwallis surrendered to Washington, effectively ending the Revolutionary War.
