Description: 192 pages, Reprint of the 1938 edition. An exploration through one of America’s most richly historic towns: its houses, heroes and legends. Illustrated by the author. Colonial Yorktown is in many ways a history of America in miniature. It is a chronicle of exploration and discovery; of Indian wars and hardship; of the tobacco trade and great plantations; of a growing spirit of independence; of the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Yorktown was the home of many distinguished Virginia families, including such names as Nelson, Read, Lightfoot, West, Digges, and a host of others. Along with its neighbors, James- town and Williamsburg, this lively section of Tidewater, Yirginia, has been a center of culture in America for over three centuries. Clyde Trudell weaves these colorful events together with personalities of the past and relates them to the new Yorktown restoration, Colonial National Historical Park. His delightful pen and ink drawings show many fine examples of Yorktown's Colonial houses as well as its other famous landmarks and monuments. Clyde F. Trudell, an architect andwriter, was associated with the John D. Rockerfeller restoration of Williamsburg, and for several years served as Restoration Architect for the Nalional Park Service at Yorktown. *** 2 left in stock ***
