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!?

Love this Revolutionary War Bass Drum, Fife and Bugle. The drum was found in New Hampshire and is made of hickory and oak. Check out the handmade drum stick and great effort on the white and blue banding.
