This online course exposes the student to the American Heritage settlements of Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown. Located in southeastern Virginia and connected by the Colonial Parkway, Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown offer the visitor a unique step back in time to various periods in our country's history. From the earliest permanent English settlement in Jamestown in 1607, to a 173 acre living museum which comprises Colonial Williamsburg, ending with the Revolutionary war victory at Yorktown in 1781, you will walk where 17th and 18th century Englishmen and Americans carved out a nation called the United States of America. They left behind a legacy of law, language, customs and a way of life, which today will give the educator abundant materials with which to approach almost all academic areas and levels.

NOTE: Required DVD package must be purchased separately.
