What is so important about the battle of Yorktown?
During the American War for Independence, the 1781 Battle of Yorktown was important because it resulted in a decisive defeat of a large British force by an American-French army led by General George Washington. This defeat proved to be the 'final straw' for Great Britain, which conceded defeat in the entire war a few months later.
