HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE

The final battle of the Revolutionary War was at Yorktown in 1781. General Washington and the Continental Army trapped General Cornwallis’s British troops on land and the French Navy trapped them by sea. This American victory ended the Revolutionary War. On the same spot in 1862, a month long siege during the Civil War was held between the Union and the Confederacy. There were only a few hundred casualties and neither side gained any advantage. The winner here is inconclusive.
