"The Yorktown Centennial--The Military and Naval Reviews"
Line engraving, after sketches by J.O. Davidson, published in "Harper's Weekly", 29 October 1881, showing ceremonies commemorating the 100th anniversary of the British army's surrender at Yorktown, Virginia. The military review, shown in the upper engraving, took place on 20 October, with the Naval review (lower scene) on the following day.
In the Naval review engraving, USS Alarm is apparently the vessel in the left center foreground. USS Tennessee is in the center, with her yards and boat booms manned, and her guns saluting the British flag. The small civilian steamer Lookout is in the right foreground.
