Beschreibung

Yorktown, Virginia, first came to prominence in American history when the Revolutionary War brought the final battle to the city. Once a battlefield and later planned to be a golf course and grand hotel, the site today is a historical monument maintained by the National Parks Service. The history of this colonial town has evolved tremendously from the 17th century through the present. Focusing on the period of 1900 through the 1940s, Images of America: Yorktown highlights the places, people, and times before the area's designation as a historical monument. Among the photographs contained within this volume are those illustrating Yorktown's bustling port, preWorld War business development, and celebration at the conclusion of the Great Depression that characterize some of the area's proudest times.
