The 235th anniversary of America's momentous 1781 Revolutionary War victory at Yorktown will be celebrated with hands-on military experiences, artillery firings, and a preview of the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown with the debut of the new introductory film and exhibition galleries.

The introductory film and 22,000-square-foot exhibition galleries – and the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown name – will debut with a preview of the new museum. The living-history areas will be completed in early 2017, and a grand opening celebration from March 23 to April 4 will officially launch the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown.

Commemorative events marking the 1781 Revolutionary War victory will take place on October 19 at Yorktown Battlefield and in historic Yorktown.
