1781, British General Charles Cornwallis formally surrenders 8,000 British soldiers and seaman to a French and American force in Yorktown, Virginia bringing the American Revolution to a close.
Fast forward to October 19, 2016. This commemorative day in American history continues to draw people from around the world to historic Yorktown, Virginia. On The Gallery had a front row seat as our armed forces marched by and our high school bands played their finest. No one could deny the pride and dignity the United States Army Old Guard 3rd Infantry Regiment Fife and Drums Corp brought to this event. The corps closed out the parade but were the beginning of the march of visitors to Victory Monument where Yorktown Day ceremonies continued.
