The Virginia Revolutionary War Trail 1772 Yorktown Militia Muster

Saturday, June 4, 2022

Come join the ranks with the citizens of York as we explore our shared history and begin the celebration of the 250th Anniversary of the American Revolution.

The British are seizing our ships, the rebels in Rhode Island have burned the HMS Gaspee. The Crown's soldiers have arrested many prominent local citizens without cause and are sending them to stand trial in England, without a trial by their peers. Form the Committees of Correspondence, Virginia will be next!
