Meet British Redcoats and Patriots and learn about camp life as they prepare themselves for conflict. The Battle of Hampton, which occurred on October 26-27, 1775, marked the beginning of revolutionary warfare in Virginia. Six months had passed since the battles of Lexington and Concord, but blood was not shed in Virginia until fighting started between Virginia patriots and forces aligned with Britain.
