In honor of July 4th I recorded a detailed travel and history guide for the Battle of Yorktown. I recently visited the extremely well-preserved and restored battlefield for the podcast I host, The Educator Podcast: Walking History. It was quite the experience! It's one thing to learn about important places and events in history from a book, but it's something else entirely to stand on the sites yourself and visualize the past happening around you.

In the episode I discuss the history and background of the battle in detail, and then talk about what it's like to visit the area today, how the terrain played a crucial role in the battle, and visitor information including cost and what you can expect to see when you go there. I hope you check it out! If you like it I've recorded a variety of other episodes on other historic sites, including many Civil War battles.

Here's the link to the episode:
