Infobox photo[edit]

If there's some new rule regarding the infobox photo being too large, just crop out the bottom two images. There was no need to fix this photo in the first place. If that's still a problem, then use Lord Cornwallis' surrender portrait at Yorktown (top photo) only. Yourlocallordandsavior (talk) 10:11, 25 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Semi-protected edit request on 14 February 2023[edit]

I would like to include in the further reading list a book by the American Historian Gordon Wood The Creation of the American Republic, 1776-1787. HistoryGuy2022 (talk) 08:37, 14 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Done: Book has been added to the further reading list. DDMS123 (talk) 05:01, 27 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Image caption styling[edit]

Many of the images have an unusual 'break' styling, and many don't. Should be consistent use, and the non-break caption seems to be Wikipedia style. Was this a page decision at some point? Thanks. Randy Kryn (talk) 13:52, 9 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Photo and image formatting needs to be reviewed and improved[edit]

More and more photos, illustrations and other images have been added to this article over the last several years, giving it an increasingly cluttered look that makes it difficult to read, particularly for people with visual impairments. At least several of these image additions appear to violate Wikipedia's Manual of Style/Accessibility standards which urge editors to "Avoid placing images on the left hand side as a consistent left hand margin makes reading easier" and "Avoid sandwiching text between two images or, unless absolutely necessary, using fixed image sizes." At this point, several images need to be removed or repositioned in an image gallery in order to bring the article back into compliance with the MOS and make it more accessible for Wikipedia users with visual impairments. 47thPennVols (talk) 21:32, 19 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
