  • The battle has started!!
  • Yay, the British have surrendered!!
  • It's October 19, 1781.
  • We are free at last!!
  • The Battle of Yorktown leads to the colonists having freedom and becoming the United States of America officially. This impacts the colonists by creating cheerfulness through the colonies and making everyone feel free from the British. Also the colonist no longer had to abide by any of the British laws, acts, taxes, etc. The colonies also now had to form their own government as they were their own country. The British on the other hand probably felt depressed that they had lost to such a small land. They also lost they only colony in North America and all the resources it harbored as well.
  • This event is relevant because when the British surrender in this battle they declared that the Continental and French army had won the Revolutionary War.
