  • The plan to attack Yorktown, Virginia was kept a secret so by the time General Clinton realized what as going on, it was too late
  • The plan worked perfectly, around 14000 American and  French troops surrounded Cornwallis and his 8000 troops, the British could not send reinforcements due to French Ships, the American and French blocked off escape routes in hope that the British would surrender
  • The British ran low on supplies, an aide of General Washington named Alexander Hamilton captured British defenses, Cornwallis saw how hopeless he was and surrendered, all 8,000 British troops were captured a long with 200 guns
  • Fighting still went on after the battle at Yorktown. However the battle at Yorktown was the battle that convinced the British the war was too costly.
