This rare theme boldly Colored Magic Lantern Slide measures 4" x 3.25" and shows General George Washington at Yorktown, Virginia where the British are shown surrendering their swords and colors, thereby effectively ending the Revolutionary War. Nice bright colors and clean, unbroken paper borders. These were part of a rather lengthy “Economic Series” of Magic Lantern Slides produced by T.H. McAllister of New York. A great looking example.
