AMERICANS DEFEAT BRITISH AT YORKTOWN

Hopelessly trapped at Yorktown, Virginia, British General Lord Cornwallis surrenders 8,000 British soldiers and seamen to a larger Franco-American
force, effectively bringing an end to the
American Revolution on this day
in 1781.

Lord Cornwallis was one of the most capable British generals of the
American Revolution.
