"Sir, I propose a cessation of hostilities for twenty-four hours, and that two officers may be appointed by each side, to meet at Mr. Moore's house, to settle terms for the surrender of the posts of York and Gloucester." - Lord Cornwallis, General of the British Army
Once the British Army moved into Yorktown in 1781, the Moore family along with many other residents abandoned their homes. What the Moore family could not have known was that their home would become the site of the negotiations for the Articles of Capitulation or the agreement for
British surrender ending the last major battle of the American Revolution on October 18, 1781.
This ¾" thick wooden replica is handcrafted in the U.S. to reflect its historical features. It can set neatly on a shelf, wainscoting, or window/door trim to remind you of a special place you've visited or dream of visiting someday. A short description is written on the back. Look for Casper, our mascot black cat, taking up residence within the design. This is the sign of an authentic Cat’s Meow!
