Battlefields serve as both important memorials and vital resources for understanding and appreciating the past. In 2022, the American Revolution Institute launched a new tour series to explore our nation’s Revolutionary War battlefields. Each of our two-day battlefield tour experiences consists of a dinner and lecture given by a scholar on a subject related to the featured battlefields and is accompanied by an in-depth guided tour led by an expert.

Our Next Battlefield Tour

Yorktown, Virginia
June 9-10, 2023

Join us in Yorktown, Va., to explore the Siege of Yorktown. This is a two-day experience that includes a buffet dinner and lecture at the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, and a lecture given by Dr. J. Britt McCarley, chief historian and director for the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Military History and Heritage Program, will analyze the 1780-1781 Virginia campaign that culminated with the Siege of Yorktown. Accompanying the dinner and lecture, a guided bus tour of Yorktown Battlefield the following day will closely examine the events that transpired during the siege and explore various key locations that comprised it.
