The Yorktown Battlefield has opened exhibits and demonstrations to mark the 150th anniversary of a noted Civil War siege.
The historic site held weekend programs that showed visitors the role of artillery from the 17th century to the 20th century, focusing on Civil War-era artillery used at Yorktown.
The battlefield also has opened the Civil War exhibit, "On Historic Ground" at the Yorktown National Cemetery Lodge. The display, which opened Saturday, highlights the military and civilian stories of Yorktown during the Civil War.
It also encompasses soldiers' thoughts on occupying the same ground as the 1781 Revolutionary War battle in which led to the British surrender.
