WILLIAMSBURG, Va., October 18, 2012 – “All About the Revolution,” a blog that delves into an array of historical topics relating to the American Revolution and early national period, marks its first anniversary with “Yorktown’s Fame Predates the Revolution.” Access to the blog is from the home page of hif.ciniva.net, the website for Jamestown Settlement and Yorktown Victory Center history museums located in Virginia’s Jamestown-Williamsburg-Yorktown Historic Triangle.
The blog debuted in 2011 with an essay on the meaning of the American Revolution. In addition to history pieces such as “Shopping Gave Rise to America’s Growing Conflict With Britain” and “The Morris Brothers Choose Different Sides,” “All About the Revolution” provides updates on the future American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, which will replace the Yorktown Victory Center by late 2016, and features objects in the museum collection.
