This was the site of the last major battle of the Revolutionary war where General George Washington and the French trapped a major British force commanded by Lieutenant General Lord Cornwallis in 1781. When Cornwallis was forced to surrender the British government was compelled to sue for peace granting the United States the freedom which was so hard fought. Tour the battle field with Sonshine Educational T0urs, see the re-creation of a Colonial Army encampment and experience the hardships of those brave Patriots who fought for our freedom.
