Jamestown Settlement, Military Through the Ages.

Jamestown Settlement's Military Through the Ages

 One of our favorite early spring events in the area is “Military through the Ages!”

 This weekend long program is presented at the Jamestown Settlement, just over 4 miles right down the street from A Williamsburg White House Inn. Enjoy hundreds of re-enactors depicting soldiers from the 8th century to modern times. This event will take place from March 19-20, 2011.  During this weekend, you can experience the past and present in a unique display of Miltary History as re-enactors show how uniforms, weapons and military tactics evolved thoughout the centuries, as well as field communication and medical treatment. The event also showcases a variety of military vehicles and equipment.

Visitors are encouraged to interact with re-enactors to learn how soldiers attired and armed themselves, as well as how they were fed and housed in times of war.
Thirty five groups based in Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and North Carolina will portray soldiers and military encounters from the medieval and Viking periods, Hundred Years’ War, War of the Roses, French and Indian War, American Revolution, War of 1812 and American Civil War. Re-enactors representing World Wars I and II, Vietnam War and the Soviet War in Afghanistan will take visitors through the 20thcentury, with the Virginia Army National Guard representing the present

Spring Getaways in Williamsburg

February 12th, 2011 by wdtp

Spring flowers in Williamsburg

One of my favorite times of the year. The flowers and trees in bloom, the grass is green, the skies are blue and the humidity is low. Williamsburg is beautiful in the spring. Enjoy full programming in Colonial Williamsburg, take the shuttle to Jamestown or Yorktown and leave your car in the driveway. Stroll through the farmers market down the street on Saturday mornings and then jump on a carriage ride down Duke of Gloucester street in the afternoon sun. Enjoy shopping in Merchant Square and sit outside the Cheese Shop with a glass of wine and a sampling of cheese. Restaurants abound as you choose from “our own Emeril” at A Chefs Kitchen to  Fine dining at the Fat Canary. If you prefer a French Bistro for some “comfort food”, then try the Blue Talon, but if you want to hear a little jazz, head to the Trellis restaurant for dinner and music. Back at the Inn, we will have your room waiting for you, some warm tasty snacks along with wine , port and sherry in the late afternoon. In the morning, wake to a delicious breakfast, steaming hot coffee and great conversation.
