Hear how citizens struggle with wartime price gouging by merchants. Engage in an argument over taxation or women’s rights.

More than a dozen 18th-century trades are preserved and demonstrated in Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area.

our visit to Jamestown Settlement starts with “1607: A Nation Takes Root,” the docudrama film that chronicles Jamestown’s origins in England, the colonists’ struggle to survive and thrive in Virginia, their interaction with the Powhatan Indians and the arrival in 1619 of the first Africans, from the kingdom of Ndongo in Angola. Comprehensive gallery exhibits build on the theme of converging cultures and describe world events and social and economic conditions that led to the English colonization of America and the formation of the Virginia Company that sponsored Jamestown with a goal of earning its investors a profit. Exhibits trace the development of the Virginia colony from a humble outpost in 1607 to a politically and economically secure entity. Find out about the cultivation of tobacco, the cash crop that ensured the Colony’s survival, and the evolution of social and government institutions throughout the 17th century, while Jamestown served as Virginia’s capital. Outdoors, at a re-created Powhatan Indian village, learn how the Powhatans farmed, hunted, fished and gathered to obtain materials needed for housing, clothing and food. Take part in activities Pocahontas would have helped with as a child, like grinding corn and making cordage. At the museum pier, board the Susan Constant, Godspeed or Discovery, replicas of the three ships that transported the original Jamestown colonists to Virginia in 1607. A seasonal riverfront discovery area provides information about European, Virginia Indian and African economic activities associated with water, including navigation, boat building, fishing, commodities and trade. Within the triangular wooden palisade, the re-created James Fort interprets the settlement during 1610-14, reflecting its military and commercial character. See a “settler” load and fire a matchlock musket, a blacksmith forge tools or a carpenter work with wood. Gift shops and café on museum premises.

yorktown battlef ield



he British Surrendered; Independence Was Won. Yorktown Battlefield is the site of the final major clash of the American Revolution and symbolic end of the colonial period of our nation’s history. On these fields in the fall of 1781, General George Washington and his allied American and French army surrounded and besieged General Charles Lord Cornwallis’ British and German forces at the port of Yorktown. The ensuing British surrender resulted in the war’s end, granting independence to the United States of America. Administered by the National Park Service as part of Colonial National Historical Park, the Yorktown Battlefield allows visitors the unique opportunity to follow in the footsteps of General Washington and walk the actual ground where these important historic events took place. In the Yorktown Battlefield Visitor Center, walk the quarterdeck of a full-sized replica of a British warship and examine a collection of artifacts from the battle, including a variety of flags and weapons surrendered by the British at the end of the siege. Be sure to see the exhibit of tents used by General Washington during the campaign. Recently returned to display after an extensive five-year restoration, the tents are housed in a new, state-of-the-art exhibit case, allowing visitors to not only view the tents, but actually enter the walls within which General Washington planned one of the most momentous events in our nation’s history. Walking tours of the battlefield and the historic town are offered on a daily basis. A seven-mile self-guided driving tour winds through the cannons, fortifications and markers of the battlefield for a chronological tour of the siege. See original and reconstructed earthworks and siege lines. At Surrender Field, stand on the very site where the British troops laid down their arms on October 19, 1781 and effectively ended the American Revolution. The National Park Service also operates historic houses and sites in the village of Yorktown. Visit or call 757.898.2410 for more information.

ain a new appreciation and understanding of the nation’s beginnings at the Yorktown Victory Center, a museum of the American Revolution, near the battlefield where the decisive battle took place in the fall of 1781.

Through eleven generations, one family has continued to own, operate and work this grand southern plantation. The guided tour of the Great House highlights 370 years of family stories as well as original furnishings, portraits, silver and hand-carved woodwork. Included with admission is access to leisurely explore seven original colonial outbuildings surrounded by open fields on the banks of the expansive James River.

During Colonial times, ale, a top fermenting English beer, was a necessity of life. “We could not now take time for further search or consideration, our victuals being much spent, especially our beer, and it being now the 19th of September.” (Mayflower, 1620). Initially, the colonies imported beer for family consumption, sale or barter. Colonial Tavern beer was often brewed on premises. Over time, commercial brewing developed in the larger cities. AleWerks is Williamsburg’s only microbrewery, brewing handcrafted ales, traditional and contemporary, for the Commonwealth. Visit our brewery and pick up fresh beer for your lodging or to take home with you. In addition to great beers, the retail shop offers a variety of unique beer accessories and apparel. Cheers!
