Best Answer

The During the Revolutionary war there were two significant surrendering of a British Army.

The first one took place at Saratoga, where Lord Burgoyne's British Army laid down their arms, on October 17, 1777. It was the first turning point of the war, that one that led France, soon followed by Spain and Holland to militarily intervene on the Colonists side.

The second one was that of Yorktown, where Cornwallis's British Army surrendered on October 19, 1781 to the Allied Rochambeau's French Army and Washington's American Army, ending the fighting in America and leading, on September 3, 1783, Great Britain to acknowledge by a formal treaty the Independence of the United States.
