8 The Yorktown Victory Monument – commemorating the victory, the alliance with France that brought it about, and the resulting peace with Great Britain after the war - is located just outside the current town.The monument's main shaft is made of Maine granite and is 84 feet tall. The Liberty statue on tops adds another 14 feet to the overall height.
9 The Yorktown Victory Monument is the name most commonly used to describe this monument, however, officially it is the Monument to the Alliance and Victory. The first idea of constructing a monument to victory came as soon as word was received back in Philadelphia of Cornwallis' surrender.
10 In 1942, severe damage was caused to the monument after a lightning strike. A new duplicate figure, sculpted by Oskar Hansen, had to be created and was installed in 1957. Although lightning protection was added at that time, in 1990, the Liberty figure was again struck by lightning. The statue was repaired in the same year, the lightning protection was upgraded.
