Entrenched In History At Yorktown Battlefield, Yorktown, Virginia



These earthen work entrenchments are found throughout the Yorktown Battlefield. They were built by the English and used during the battle in 1781 and, during the Civil War, were enlarged. They provided some protection during battle.

It is truly amazing that they are still there after all this time... and weather.
Have a great day.
Always, Queenie

One of my favorite things about the entire mid-Atlantic area, is how so much of the battlefields from both wars has been preserved and kept alive after all this time. So much history...
