Home of the Warwick Beauregards
— 1862 Peninsula Campaign —The white two-and-a-half story frame building in front of you in the distance is Endview. Endview was built circa 1760 by Col. William Harwood, Jr., who was a member of the House of Burgesses, a signer of the Virginia Resolves, and a Warwick County militia officer. When the French-American army began its march to begin the Revolutionary War's Siege of Yorktown on September 28, 1781, Maj. Gen. Thomas Nelson, Jr.'s, 3,000-strong Virginia militia used Endview as a campground. Because of its location at a midpoint between the James and York rivers, Endview once again served as an important militia muster point and campground during the War of 1812.
