About the Lafayette Gun (12 Pounder) – Revolutionary War Heavy Siege Gun:

British General Lord Charles Cornwallis and his army surrendered to General George Washington’s American force and its French allies at the Battle of Yorktown on October 19, 1781. One of three division commanders in the American army during the Yorktown campaign was 24-year-old Maj. Gen. Marquis de Lafayette who oversaw an attack during the battle on Redoubt 10 with 400 men led by Lt. Col. Alexander Hamilton. Captured in the attack was a 12-pounder cannon that Lafayette had inscribed "Surrendered at the Capitulation of Yorktown October 19, 1781" and then turned it over to the American Chief of Artillery. Today it is displayed as the centerpiece of the visitor center at Yorktown National Battlefield where it was captured 240 years ago.
