French Army and Navy Casualties at Yorktown

Yorktown French Memorial

In 1981, during the Battle of Yorktown Bicentennial, members of French veterans’ organizations attending the celebration noted that there was an area on the battlefield where approximately 50 French soldiers were buried in an unmarked, common grave. Although this area is indicated by a cross and a plaque, none of the names of any French soldier was inscribed there. It has long been a point of cultural tradition in France that the graves of those who have died serving France be marked with their names whenever possible, or that the battlefields have a memorial with their names inscribed.

At the urging of French veterans’ groups, the Ambassador of France to the United States, His Excellency M. Emmanuel de Margerie, appointed a committee to correct this oversight. The Committee for the Yorktown French Memorial, with Professor Andre Maman of Princeton University serving as its president, was thus created.

The purpose of the committee, which included both French and American members, was to create a memorial to honor all French soldiers and sailors who gave their lives in the Yorktown campaign in 1781. The memorial was to include the names of the some 600 Frenchmen who lost their lives in this campaign (the list may not be 100% accurate or complete). The memorial is intended to include the names of French soldiers and sailors who were killed in the naval Battle of the Chesapeake, or the Battle of the Virginia Capes, as it is sometimes called, and the Siege of Yorktown.

The committee’s tasks included the design, approval, funding and dedication of the memorial. The design was completed with the approval of the Ambassador of France to the United States and the National Park Service. Members of the French Societies of the Sons of the American Revolution, Daughters of the American Revolution and the Order of the Cincinnati as well as French veteran and cultural organizations here in the United States were engaged in fundraising to reach the goal needed to bring the project to reality. Various American hereditary and cultural societies also participated in the project.

The memorial is intended as a gesture of appreciation to honor the sacrifice of French soldiers and sailors who fought for America in those desperate days in 1781 as General Washington and the French commanders adopted the extremely risky plan which led, against all expectations, to the final victory at Yorktown, and ultimately led to the independence of the United States of America.

The United States honors and remembers the names of the soldiers and sailors of France who gave their lives fighting for the independence of the United States in the American War of Independence.

le Régiment d’Agénois

The Agénois Regiment, commanded by Baron de Cadignan, suffered heavy casualties in d’Estaing’s unsuccessful assault at Savannah (1779). A detachment of the Agénois Regiment participated in the siege and capture of Pensacola in Florida by Spanish forces on May 26, 1781. Two battalions of the Agénois Regiment were among the forces under Saint-Simon that were brought from the West Indies to fight in the Battle of Yorktown (1781). Under its commander, Comte d’Autichamp, the regiment participated in the capture of British Redoubt Number Nine on October 14, 1781. After the Battle of Yorktown, the principal engagements of the Agénois Regiment in the Americas were the battles of St Christophe and Les Saintes. The Agénois Regiment also provided a detachment that participated in the capture of St. Kitts from the British on February 13, 1782.

These are the names of 22 soldiers of le Régiment d’Agénois who gave their lives fighting for the independence of the United States in support of the Continental Army, commanded by General George Washington, during the American War of Independence.

le Régiment de Beaujolais

Régiment de BoujolaisTwo regiments of the Royaume de France (Kingdom of France) received the name « Régiment de Beaujolais », the name of the province where the regiment was raised.

The first Régiment de Boujolais, created June 16, 1685, was reformed February 10, 1749 by incorporating men of the Grenadiers de France and le Régiment de Traisnel.

The cantonnement (garrison town) of the Régiment de Beaujolais was Sélestat, a commune at the foot of the Vosges Mountains in the department of Bas-Rhin, region of Grand Est. Sélestat is in the French historic and cultural region of Alsace on the border with Germany.

On July 17, 1704, in the field before Vercelli, Ménstrel, colonel of the Régiment de Beaujolais, was killed looking through an embrasseur where he had looked two times before. On July 20, 1704, upon the request of the Duc du Vendôme, King Louis XIV gave command of the Régiment de Beaujolais to the brother of Ménstrel, who was serving as a captain in the Cuirassiers regiment of the King at the headquarters of Vercelli. The colonel of the regiment in 1734 was chevalier de Besons.

The second Régiment de Boujolais resulted from the renaming of Régiment de Lastic in 1762, which was then renamed Régiment de Lamballe in 1765, and finally renamed Régiment de Beaujolais in 1768.

Régiment de BoujolaisIt was the second Régiment de Beaujolais that participated in combined operations with American forces in the siege of Savannah, Georgia in 1779, and the campaigns of New York and Yorktown in 1781. The Régiment de Beaujolais was renamed the 74e Régiment d’infanterie de ligne on January 1, 1791.

Other regiments are: Champagne, Foix, Armagnac, Hainault, and Walsh. These regiments provided some forces for d’Estaing’s 1779 expedition to Savannah, but fought predominantly in the West Indies.

These are the names of 12 soldiers of le Régiment de Beaujolais who gave their lives fighting for the independence of the United States in support of the Continental Army, commanded by General George Washington, during the American War of Independence.

le Régiment de Dillon

The Dillon Regiment was raised in 1680 of Irish refugees. The men of the regiment wore red coats and kept recruiting among their descendants. Detachments of the regiment were with d’Estaing’s troops at the capture of Grenada and at Savannah (1779). French archives have no record of the regiment, or detachments of the regiment, having arrived with De Grasse from the West Indies to serve in the Yorktown campaign of 1781. However, one soldier of the Dillon Regiment is recorded to have been killed during the Yorktown campaign. Also, it is known that two men from the Dillon family fought in the Battle of Yorktown. Both were cavalrymen in the Lauzun Legion, and were not soldiers in the Dillon Regiment of their cousin. One of these men, Count Arthur Dillon, was wounded during the battle, in the fighting around the town of Gloucester, across Chesapeake Bay from the town of Yorktown.

This is the name of a soldier of le Régiment de Dillon who gave his life fighting for the independence of the United States in support of the Continental Army, commanded by General George Washington, during the American War of Independence.
