Virginia is filled with early American history. We’ll start in Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in the New World. We will learn the story of Peter Muhlenberg, the pastor, soldier, and statesman who lived in Woodstock. In Williamsburg, we’ll immerse ourselves in 18th century life, admiring the site of what was once the capital of Virginia. We end by studying the Battle of Yorktown, where the defeat of Cornwallis and his troops led to American independence.
