Just days after America celebrates another birthday, British “soldiers” will spill into Yorktown under the command of Lord Cornwallis.
They will set up camp, drill and post guards in and around the home of Thomas Nelson, a Patriot leader and one signer of the Declaration of Independence.
Visitors in Yorktown will have a chance to watch the soldiers reenact the 4th Company, Brigade of Guards on Saturday and Sunday in the Yorktown Battlefield, the National Park Service wrote in a news release.
There will also be public dances at the Nelson House Saturday.
Dance programming will be at 10 a.m., 10:45 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Saturday. Afternoon dances will be at 1:15 p.m., 2 p.m., 2:45 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
Yorktown visitors can register to join the dances at the Colonial National Historical Park visitor center. From there, the events can be reached by taking a short walk to the Nelson House.
