Why did we march to Yorktown, General Washington?
General Cornwallis is here. I needed to corner him by tricking him, and *If we do not deceive our own men, we will never deceive the enemy*, so I could not tell you.
* This is a quote that George Washington actually said.
See? Now we have cornered Cornwallis' second in command, O'Hara!
I cannot escape! I surrender, Washington!
That was the day,on October 19, 1781, where, against all odds, we won the revolutionary war.
I realize now that without help from our allies, the french, we would not have won.
