On This Day in American History
On October 19, 1781, British General Charles Cornwallis surrenders to American and French forces at Yorktown, Virginia, ending the American Revolutionary War. While the conflict persisted for some time on the high seas, peace talks started in 1782, and on September 3, 1783, the Treaty of Paris was signed, which established the United States as a free and independent country.
