General George Washington coordinated with Marquis de Lafayette to block Cornwallis’ escape from Yorktown in September.

Cornwallis surrendered on October 19, 1781 (or sent a lackey to surrender since he was embarrassed.) This was the beginning of the end for the British in the War for Independence.

Thanks for reminding us that before they were cheese eating surrender monkeys, we needed the help of the French!

I'm sure I have joked in the past as well. But the French are our oldest ally.

I am grateful for George Washington's leadership during the War for Independence and the Foundation of our Republic.
