A little more about our program...

The Battle of Yorktown or Siege of Yorktown was fought from April 5 to May 4, 1862, as part of the Peninsula Campaign of the American Civil War. Marching from Fort Monroe, Union Maj. Gen. George B.

McClellan suspended his march up the Peninsula toward Richmond and settled in for siege operations.  Join us to hear the rest of the story....
