1871 Yorktown Campaign Monument In Paris

This first HD photo shows a memorial plaque made to look like a gravestone, which is situated within a small garden area called the Square de Yorktown, which is to the south west of the Jardins du Trocadero close to the Palais de Chaillot.

The square itself was named to commemorate the 1781 Siege of Yorktown, which was a major battle in the American Revolutionary War, that ultimately led to American Independence, with France supporting America against the United Kingdom.

Plaque On 1871 Yorktown Campaign Monument

Therefore, as you can see from this close up photograph, the memorial plaque lists all the French fighters that lost their lives at Yorktown, which have been listed according to what regiment they served in.

Plus you will notice the embossed caption at the top of the bronze plaque is in both French and English, which reads;

In appreciation of the service of these men who made the supreme sacrifice in the Yorktown Campaign 1781.
This tablet is erected by the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, 19th October 1931.
