Most of those French regiments marched to Yorktown on foot from Newport Rhode Island. An American officer from Virginia is reported to have said the French were not the fops he had expected: "Finer troops I never saw."

General Rochambeau - George Washington's alter ego in the campaign - had been a field soldier for 40 years and had participated in 14 sieges.

In addition to those dead you listed, Admiral de Grasse lost 209 French sailors and marines off the coast of Cape Henry when he defeated the British fleet that had been sent to rescue Cornwallis.
