Music in Yorktown

We had finished our visit to Yorktown Battlefield and gone to the town to see it and the monument. We had a marvelous seafood dinner at a cafe along the River and watched the evening mist roll in. On our way out of town, we stopped to look at some of the historic buildings, when we heard fife and drums on the breeze. We went back to the monument to discover that practice was going on. The practice was The Fife and Drums of York Town, a remarkable group of young people who were getting ready for their multiple performances at the Yorktown Celebration that is going on this weekend. The music was amazing. These kids really knew what they were doing and it was quite a treat to sit and listen to them. There was something about listening to the Colonial music, played so professionally, that put a capstone on an amazing day exploring our history and celebrating our Liberty!!! You can hear their music on their site!
