A large number of us went to the 225th anniversary event at Yorktown, Virginia.  Attending members were: Glenn, George, Jim P, Bob, Mike and Tracey, Frank and Vi, Jim R, Don and Pat, Kevin, and our fifer Matt.

 The Battalion gets ready to march to Surrender Field on Sunday.  This is just one of three battalions present.  Another 40 or more men were behind the militia, not to mention that this picture is taken from the front of the militia and doesn't show them either!

  Silently the British marched past.  No cheering, No jeering,   A respected enemy.  To add to the solemnity, it was raining.
