As my high school history classes fad further into oblivion, it was nice to have this section of American History refreshed through exhibits, film and maps. This museum is as good as it gets. It not only covers the event around Yorktown and Virginia, but...More

This is a very detailed and interactive museum. The history is not simply southern specific nor just locally specific, but rather covers the revolution in its entirety and from multiple viewpoints. Extremely well done.
