In another testimony to the Franco-American alliance (1778) that led to victory during the Revolutionary War, a fourth statue was unveiled Monday, October 18, 2021. The public was invited to witness this addition to the waterfront in a historic step toward fulfilling York County’s original intent to honor the four great leaders of the Yorktown campaign: Lafayette, Grasse, Washington, and now Rochambeau.
