Yorktown - Fine Art
On May 13, 1607, Jamestown was established as the first permanent English settlement in North America. Three cultures came together - European, Virginia Indian and African - to create a new society that would eventually seek independence from Great Britain. On October 19, 1781, American and French troops defeated the British at Yorktown in the last major battle of the American Revolutionary War.
