Virginia Journeys: Yorktown
The Siege of Yorktown was the last major land battle of the American Revolutionary War. In the fall of 1781, General George Washington, with allied American and French forces, besieged General Charles Lord Cornwallis’s British army. On October 19, Cornwallis surrendered, effectively ending the war and ensuring independence.
