Join National President Dee Guillory on Thursday, October 19, and step into history in Yorktown, Virginia, a site known for its waterfront beauty and famous battles.

At Yorktown Battlefield, part of the National Park Service’s Colonial National Historical Park, you can see where George Washington secured America’s independence in 1781.”
