To commemorate the victory over the British at Yorktown, the Continental Congress on October 29, 1781, authorized the Yorktown Victory Monument. Construction began a century later with completion in 1884.
Family members present at the battle:
Lockhart family: Charles De Pauw.
Myers family: Jacob Tanner
There is a possibility that Jacob Tanner's father; Christopher; was also there .
