More Photos of Yorktown

I posted a few photos of our visit to Yorktown in September but I have a few more to share now that the weather has turned gray and unphotogenic. The first one shows Frank posing with George Washington and Admiral Francois De Grasse. The latter commanded the French fleet which controlled the water access to the town. Without the French, Washington's victory at Yorktown would probably not have happened.

Below is the Yorktown Victory Monument.
