April 28-29: Civil War Living History: The 1862 Siege of Yorktown

In the spring of 1862, the site of the British surrender during the Revolutionary War once again saw opposing forces facing each other behind fortifications. This time, the armies were larger and the fortifications longer. As troops settled in and a siege once again began, a series of small battles took place between the lines. For many of these men, this was their first taste of battle. Throughout the next 3 years battles would become larger are more deadly but many soldiers still remembered the trying times they experienced facing each other near Yorktown.

Visit historic Endview Plantation and learn what life was like for the Union and Confederate armies that faced each other during these early engagements in the Peninsula Campaign. Includes camp life, demonstrations, and guided tours of the historic house. Free with regular admission.
