The Big Guns, Yorktown, Virginia


As part of the Revolutionary War historical presentations in Yorktown, canons are placed in areas at which they were likely deployed during the battle. On occasion, canon and period guns are shot. They create quite a noise and smoke.  Click for more information on the Yorktown Victory Center and the Yorktown Battlefield.
