Which battles did George Washington win?

Purpose of Yorktown?

During the American Revolutionary War, the purpose of the Yorktown battle in 1781 was different for each of the sides involved. For the British, the purpose was to strike a serious blow to the Colonies by occupying the important colony of Virginia. For the Americans (aided by their French allies), the purpose was to counter the British invasion and, with some luck, to win a battle that would have decisive results for the entire war.


What battles did the Americans win in the American Revolution?

I don't really know but they got General Cornwallis to surrender by surrounding him, with a French Navy blocking off Chesapeake Bay and the Americans behind him. General Nathaniel Greene exhausted them by attacking, then running. The British plundered civilian homes and bad feelings soon arose.
