Visitors should be prepared for a walk up to one half mile. Limited seating is found along this walk; visitors should plan to stand for much of this presentation. Each ranger-led walk begins at the Regimental Flags in front of the building.

Ranger Talk: (20 mins) 1:30 pm & 3:30 pm: Join a park ranger for a brief exploration into the people, places, and/or events in Yorktown during the American War for Independence.
