Colonial National Historical Park – Yorktown Battlefield
On October 19, 1781, a British army under General Cornwallis was forced to surrender to General Washington’s combined American and French army. Upon hearing of their defeat, British Prime Minister Frederick Lord North is reputed to have said, “Oh God, it’s all over.” And it was. The victory secured independence for the United States and significantly changed the course of world history. Yorktown Battlefield is a must see if you are in the Colonial Williamsburg area.
