Oxen: Source of Power
Event Website

Oxen played an important role in the lives of 18th-century Virginians. They provided the power to pull plows and move heavy loads. Oxen were prefered for long-distance moves, because they were hardier than horses and better able to find food along the way. Though Virginians loved their horses, a yoke of oxen was likely to be of greater service over the long haul. Locations may vary, check "Colonial Williamsburg Today" for current location.
