Forgotten history. That is the "Surrender Table" on which the American and French negotiated terms of surrender with the English during the Revolutionary War. Currently at Elsing Green Plantation in middle-of-nowhere Virginia. Shouldn't it be on prominent display at the Smithsonian!?

The G&G Club celebrates in King Willaim, Virginia at The Elsing Green Plantation. Beautiful setting!
