It’s Official, the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown Dedicated

The American Revolution Museum at Yorktown was officially dedicated April 1, 2017, the high point of a 13-day Grand Opening Celebration saluting each of the first original 13 colonies in the order that they ratified the Constitution. Virginia Governor Terence R. McAuliffe served as the keynote speaker and dedicated the museum to the late Nick and Mary Mathews, benefactors to the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation who donated the land on which the museum is built.
