Yorktown Victory Monument, Yorktown, Virginia


The Yorktown Victory Monument stands high on the hill above the York River and at the edge of the historic Yorktown where George Washington defeated Cornwallis and the British to bring about the end of the Revolutionary War.

Can imagine what that battle looked like here on this site all those years ago!

Lovely. I like the leaves and the results of the Revolutionary War. Otherwise we might not be here.
