Washington and de Grasse Statues, Yorktown, Virginia

These statues of General George Washington, commander of the American forces, and Admiral Francois De Grasse, commander of the French Fleet, stand at Riverwalk Landing in Yorktown, the site of their joint victory over Cornwallis which led to the end of the American Revolution.
