Many places where the Revolution happened can be visited today. Walk into the room where the Declaration was approved and signed. Stand where the Kings Mountain loyalists were trapped and imagine being surrounded by an enemy army. Visit the home that Abigail Adams ran while John was in Congress and where she wrote him about events in New England. Imagine yourself a British soldier under siege on the Yorktown peninsula. Search through the entire National Park System for a park near you!
The National Park Service, state park authorities, and others maintain these and many other historic sites for the benefit of you and future generations.
