The battle of Yorktown marked the final stage in the war for Independence. It was in October, 1781, that Washington and 6,000 French troops under de Rochambeau (left) laid siege to Yorktown where Lord Cornwallace' army had been bottled up. The English positions fell before a night attack by troops bearing the Stars and Stripes Flag and the Banner of Auvergne under de Rochambeau. The next day Washington was to say: "The work is done and well done, America will soon be forever free from foreign domination."
An unmentioned General. Perhaps Lafayette.
