A detail from a panoramic painting by Van Blarenbergue showing part of the British army marching along a road lined with American troops, wheeling into a field where they lay down their arms and march away. The local population seem to be enjoying a day out, watching the spectacle of crest-fallen soldiers taking their muskets to be handed over.
