Vienna: F. Godefroy, 1777. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 5 x 6 3/4". Framed 15 3/4 x 16" This informative engraving by Fauvel depicts the surrender of General John Burgoyne at the Battle of Saratoga on 17th October 1777 during the American Revolutionary War. The image shows the British army on the left and the American army on the right with General Burgoyne surrendering his sword to Major General Horatio Gates. The Battle of Saratoga is considered a turning point in the American Revolutionary War that won the Americans foreign assistance from France. Following Burgoyne's surrendering the sword, which was returned, the British army surrendered their arms while the American army played "Yankee Doodle", which is depicted here in the view. The view is in good condition with minor foxing. Nicely framed. (Inventory #: 266556)
