Yorktown Day - The Surrender Tour

Monday, October 19, 2020

There is no better way to experience Historic Yorktown than taking a stroll with a professional historian! Tour guides Maureen Wiese and J. Michael Moore of Hampton Roads Tours will provide interesting historical information and insights not typically found in history books.

On October 19, the British Army, under Lord Cornwallis, surrendered to the American Allies. In this informative walking tour of Surrender Field, learn about the events that took place on that day 239 years ago.

This tour meets at Surrender Field Parking Lot. Please be aware that this is an outside walking tour with stops along the way. Participants are advised to wear sunscreen, limit the weight of bags, bring a water bottle, and wear comfortable shoes. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Tours are weather permitting. 

Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic—all York County sponsored and partner community events are subject to postponement or cancellation. This includes changes to dates, times, and locations.
