1781 Siege of Yorktown
— Colonial National Historical Park —"The next night, which was the sixth of October ? We this night completed laying out the works. The troops of the line were there ready with entrenching tools and began to entrench, after General Washington had struck a few blows with a pickax, a mere ceremony, that it might be said "General Washington with his own hands first broke ground at the siege of Yorktown."
