Victory At Yorktown!
During the Winter of 1777-1778, Prussian army officer Friedrich von Steuben came to teach basic military skills to the American troops. Due to terrible weather conditions, over 1/5 of the men died, mostly from disease and lack of supplies. Yet there was no battle actually fought, it is still a very important part of the American Revolution.
At Breed's Hill, Boston was surrounded and the British tried to take Charlestown. The Colonists prepared their best, but they were low on resources and eventually did run out of ammunition. The British won, but also lost more men than the Colonists. The colonists lost around 400 men, while the British lost more than 1,000 men.
Victory at Yorktown! This is the site of General Cornwallis's official surrender to the Patriots, due to the Treaty of Paris. The Treaty of Paris was a peace agreement that ended the war officially.
