Datebook: October 19 – Siege of Yorktown Formally Ends with Cornwallis’ Surrender 230 Years Ago

leave a comment »

On October 19, 1781, at Yorktown, Virginia, representatives of British commander Lord Cornwallis handed over Cornwallis’ sword and formally surrendered to George Washington and the comte de Rochambeau. The Siege of Yorktown was a decisive victory by a combined assault of American forces led by General George Washington and French forces led by the Comte de Rochambeau over a British Army commanded by Lieutenant General Lord Cornwallis. The culmination of the Yorktown campaign proved to be the last major land battle of the American Revolutionary War in North America, as the surrender of Cornwallis’ army prompted the British government eventually to negotiate an end to the conflict.
