Our second day of vacation was spent in Jamestown. We went to Jamestown Settlement not Historic Jamestown, we didn't have time for both and decided that we would be able to see more at the Settlement. We saw the orientation movie then went on a 90 minute tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable, the tour ended at the recreation of the ships that brought the first settlers to Jamestown. I can't imagine being on one of those little ships for over 100 days with a 100 other people.
After leaving Jamestown we went to Yorktown. There was a demonstration of how to fire a cannon. I answered a question correctly about Molly Pitcher and was recruited to help in the demonstration. That was hard work. I am on the right in the photo above. The person who had that position had to stand there while the cannon was being fired to assist in adjusting the position of the cannon for the next fire. This is a position that women often held.
Three days was definitely not enough time to see everything. Would love to go back someday.
